This book is comprised of the papers presented at a Symposium on Chemistry and the Enviroment held during the Chemistry International Conference in Brisbane, Australia from 1 to 2 September 1989. The Symposium sought to bring together eminent scientists to identify and discuss major environmental issues of consequence to the AsiaPacific region having a direct association with chemistry.



Recent Trends in Environmental Management in the Asia-Pacific Region

In short, poverty itself seemed polluting. Therefore, countries of the region have generally considered economic growth and industrialisation as key development priorities and concern for the protection of the environment has been regarded as of secondary importance.
