Start Date and Time:

Bangkok, Thailand

The Greater Mekong Region is facing an increasing number of environmental pollution challenges including air, water, and solid waste pollution. Major factors contributing to these problems include high population growth rate, migration of people from rural to urban centres, the rapid urbanization, accelerating industrialization, improper final disposal of solid wastes and weak enforcement of the Law on Environmental Protection and Development. There is a critical need for improved municipal and industrial waste & wastewater treatments.
