Democratization, Decentralization, and Environmental Governance in Asia

Edited by: Akihisa Mori

After the wave of democratization and decentralization in several Asian nations in the 1980s and 1990s, there has been a marked increase in environmental policy-making. However, social differences among the various countries have led to diverse political consequences and, therefore, a diversity of environmental policies. This collaborative book outlines the political changes in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Indonesia during the past 20 years. Against this backdrop, the book analyzes and compares environmental policies, as well as future prospects for the environment in these countries.
