SDPI 2004 - 7th Sustainable Development Conference
8-10 December 2004, Islambabd, Pakistan

Theme: "Troubled Times: Sustainable Development and Governance in the Age of Extremes"

Technical Sessions: "Governmental structural adjustments for better governance towards environmental protection and pollution control in South Asia/Pakistan" (Session Organizer: Dr. Mahmood A. Khwaja)

Environmental regulatory enforcement and compliance: Environmental regulatory enforcement and compliance continue to be the main problems in controlling the rapid depletion and degradation of segments of environment (air, water, soil, forests, aquatic life, etc.) in South Asia. Do the existing governmental structure and patterns of governance for tackling national and regional environmental issues facilitate law enforcement and strengthen stakeholders participation by adequately providing opportunities to educate and access to available information? The Seventh SDC will look at the manner(s) in which governments cooperate and exercise power in natural resource management in their respective countries and in South Asian region. The participants of the conference would share their experiences and will discuss national and South Asian regional environmental issues pertaining to all segments of environment.
