Urban-rural environment, Sustainable water environment governance in Asian cities Session:

Asia, which supports an estimated 3 billion people, is one of the most important environmental and economic regions in the world due to mild climate. Asia is home to a wide range of aquatic and terrestrial species as well as historic/cultural sites, making it a prime tourist destination. The region also is rapidly becoming industrialized. Numerous industrialized countries have located factories in Asia. Although economic development and conservation of natural resources frequently are opposing agendas, we have to find a means to make them more compatible. Rapid urbanization in Asian large cities, which is far beyond the capacity of the appropriate development rate, are experiencing numerous environmental problems: surface and groundwater pollution, solid and hazardous wastes, and air pollution.
This session aim to depict the current status of urban environment, especially surface water environment, and to discuss the sustainable approach toward healthy and beautiful water environment in Asian urban region.
