About This Book

Following decades of vigorous economic expansion, Asia is confronting the environment consequences of unfettered development. This poses a challenge because of the strong bias of prevailing cultural systems in the region toward the goal of lifting standards of living over achieving ecological sustainability. This book addresses the relationship between Asian cultural values and international environmental law. It highlights the tension between wealth maximization and environmental preservation - its evolution over time, the key issues to which it gives rise, and the policy mechanisms employed in this context, with special reference to the expanding body of international environmental law.
