Background and Rationale

Since 1970s, the United Nations has launched a number of conventions, protocols, and agenda concerning pollution, environmental change, and natural resource depletion.  Conventions and protocols of Stockholm, Basel, Cartagena, and Rio de Janeiro, for examples, are prime policies for many countries to follow in order to raise public awareness and mitigate environmental problems facing humanity.  However, mutual interest among member countries for environmental security does not agree to different social and economic conditions of each country.  Some countries can create national policies reflecting the international agreement without hands-on implementation plans, especially poor countries in the Third World.  On the contrary, most countries eagerly generate their national economic policies with detailed application plans in order to compete with each other in the world free trade arena.  Apparently, high economic growth causes great income gap between the rich and the poor countries as well as individual people.  As a result, it further causes social inequality and environmental injustice.

End of pipe solutions for poverty eradication, illiteracy, pollution control, and environmental management mainly based on technological innovation of developed countries have been seriously suggested and employed, while prevention of environmental problems have been loosely collaborated because they seem to be an economic slowdown or obstruction.  As most countries realized that they have heavily exploited natural resources and generate unwanted wastes which cause loss of biodiversity, global warming, coastal erosion, etc.  Frequent excuse of such wrong doings is ‘well-being’ or ‘better quality of life’ of humanity with immoral economic wealth distribution.  Natural resources around the world have been explored and exploited rapidly due to over-production and over-consumption by irresponsible new technologies causing serious harm to global ecological system.

Well-being of humanity cannot be survived and sustained without responsible agencies and people who are taking care of good environment.  It is questionable that can we change our perception of economic competition into socioeconomic collaboration for vibrant global ecological system, and how can we have more practical global policy coping with environmental dynamics?  This issue is then leading to the arrangement of international conference of EnvironmentAsia IV, during 21-23 June 2017 Bangkok, Thailand for where participants can share and learn each other.
