About the product

Development strategies in the Asia and the Pacific region are heavily focused on fostering economic growth and do not always focus on the detrimental environmental effects of the modalities used to implement the strategy. This publication discusses the modalities for environmental assessments. It focuses on flood loss reduction in Bangladesh, urban development and environmental protection in Shanghai, China and fishery resources development, and management in Samoa.
