Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This timely series seeks to provide objective information about the new trade agenda and to encourage an informed dialogue about the role of trade in development, particularly for the world's poorest countries. This book demonstrates how community and local government initiatives play a key role in arresting pollution during the rapid industrialization experienced by Japan in the 1960s and 1970s. The approaches described are relevant to current pollution problems and are reviewed from the perspective of developing countries.

Book News Annotation:

Japan has become a leader in technical improvements in the control of urban and industrial pollution. In this report, drawn from workshops in Manila and Kusatsu in 2002, contributors examine the policies and institutional and local contexts that made these improvements possible. In their series of seven articles they describe case studies from Japan and their application to developing countries in East Asia, specific situations in air pollution, water management, water pollution, the implications of Japan's environmental "soft loan" program, a study of the Nagoya City effort to link local and global environmental goals, and the general lessons learned. The editors include summaries of reviews of Japanese case studies.

Synopsis:

Despite recognition of the ill effects of pollution and the enactment of environmental regulations, pollution monitoring and compliance in developing countries continue to lag. 'Local Approaches to Environmental Compliance' demonstrates how community and local government initiatives played a key role in arresting pollution during Japan's industrialization in the 1960s and 1970s. The approaches described are relevant to current pollution problems and are reviewed from the perspective of developing countries.
