Conference on Environmental Pollution, Restoration, and Management

The recent economic and industrial developments of Asian countries have resulted in increased pressures to the environment. A literature review indicates that surface water in some Asian countries has been contaminated with both organic and inorganic substances (e.g., pesticides). Most of the contaminants were coming from agricultural application and industrial emissions. Urban development has also resulted in changes in land use that directly affect water resources and ecosystems. In big cities and industrial areas, air is polluted with chemicals emitted from industrial facilities and exhaust fumes. This directly affects public health.
A lack of public awareness and ineffective environmental regulation has resulted in environmentalproblems for some Asian countries. The pace of development of environmental science programs in developing countries has also resulted in a gap in knowledge and regulation between developed and developing countries. As global environmental problems (e.g., global warming due to emissions of greenhouse gases, deforestation, climate change) increase, enhancing education in environmental science and protection of the environment is our responsibility.
The goal of this conference is to bring environmental scientists from the developed and developing countries together to exchange experiences and to discuss existing environmental issues. During the conference, an interactive meeting is scheduled for environmental scientists and managers to engage one another and discuss issues and solutions to environmental problems. This conference is designed to initiate and to further strengthen ongoing collaborations between environmental scientists from all over the world.
