In Asia, we have 48 countries and each country is in different stage especially for environment/disaster/energy-related issues. The area of environment concerned is also an issue for discussion as well as the level of environmental technology available locally. Besides currently being progressed climate change renders even more potential and difficulty in local environment management.
While in different environmental situations, we have been having a wide range of environmental tasks to carry on with valuable relevant experience. Some of them, based on mutual understanding on the Asian regional circumstance, could be remarkably beneficial when we put them into sharing communication and integrating process.
After a long discussion with Asian groups, the network has been decided to setup and will be utilized to share those benefits while exchanging local information with available solutions and experience.
