This report represents the culmination of the two phases of ECO ASIA Long-term Perspective Project (LTPP). The first phase of the project was initiated in 1993 and presented its report in 1997. The second phase commenced in 1998. Both projects were launched under the framework of ECO ASIA to provide policy makers with scientific policy analysis on the environment and development in Asia and the Pacific region.
The key concepts for long-term sustainable development in the region developed by the LTPP are Eco-Consciousness, Eco-Partnership, Eco-Technology/ Eco-Investment, and Eco-Policy Linkage. The first phase of LTPP (1993-1997) focused on examining the 4 key concepts and the outcomes of this phase were published as "A Long-term Perspective on Environment and Development in the Asia-Pacific Region: ECO ASIA Long-term
Perspective Project Final Report" (ECO ASIA, 1997). The second phase of LTPP (1998-2001) was conducted to further examine and promote the 4 key concepts and materialize the concepts with regard to critical environmental issues in the region, and its findings are included herein.
