Book Details

Water resources in Asia are under great strain, primarily due to the high population density and water pollution. Inextricably linked to water problems, and exacerbating them, are other environmental issues concerning climate change; acid mine drainage; land use, land use change, and forestry; fertilizer and pesticide residues in soil and water; and solid and liquid waste management especially in urban settlements and industrial areas.

Though the immediate effects of these problems may be local and region-specific, longer-term solutions require a pan-Asian approach. However, most of the literature available on the subject is usually is based on research done in Europe and North America. The Asian Journal of Water, Environment and Pollution intelligently answers the urgent call and disseminates information on research focused on Asia.
