The rapid economic growth in the Pearl River Delta in the past 15-20 years has provided economic opportunities for many of its habitants and has attracted investment and people from outside the region. The resulting population growth and increase in under-regulated business practices has put tremendous stress on the environment. Now there is (grave) concern regarding the deteriorating the environmental quality and regional climate which may hinder sustainable growth and further economic development. Since pollution of all types is affected by emissions from surrounding cities and counties, a regional approach is needed for a full assessment of its impact and the development of appropriate solutions.
The objective of the conference is to bring together expertise in air and water pollution, climate and planning, and stake holders from the commercial sector, environmental groups and government agencies to assess the impact of pollution on the regional climate change, environment conditions and economic development. It serves as a forum for information exchange and networking for further joint activities and collaboration.Themes
