About the product

The State of the Environment in Asia and the Pacific 2005 report takes a new and deeper look at the pressures on the environment arising from rapid economic growth in the region. It argues that member governments have made progress in improving environmental performance; however, because of the limited environmental carrying capacity of the region and the immense pressure exerted by the changing consumption and production patterns, environmental degradation continues. The publication elaborates on green growth policy measures as a key requirement for achieving the Millennium Development Goals on environmental sustainability and poverty reduction.
