Ways to Achieve Green Asia

Escalating environmental degradation and the risk of climate change are attracting growing attention from both policy makers and the public.

For Asian countries, decades of remarkable economic growth have had mixed results in terms of environmental implications.

This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the environment and climate change in Asia. It first gives an overview of the environmental challenges facing the region and summarizes the economic impacts of climate change. It also offers in-depth discussions of environmental regulations, environmental governance, environmental evaluation, and the growth of carbon markets in Asia. The volume finally explores the relationship between globalization and the environment, particularly through informative case studies on the People’s Republic of China and India. In this vein, this book advances policy recommendations for more effective environmental and climate change governance in the region.
