15 April 2020 – Bangkok, Thailand
The Secretariat for the Acid Deposition Monitoring Network in East Asia (EANET) and the Network Center for the EANET have released the latest versions of the participating countries’ Fact Sheets and EANET Brochure.
Country Fact Sheets
Regrouping 13 East Asian countries under its umbrella, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Russia, Thailand and Viet Nam, EANET has released, in April 2020, the latest updated version of its participating countries’ Fact Sheets.
Composed of detailed, yet condensed, descriptions of the current situation and progress of the air quality state in each country, the Fact Sheets assess the main sources of pollution and the related trends. The documents also describe the monitoring sites per country, their locations, monitoring parameters, and types (wet deposition, dry deposition, inland aquatic environment, soil, and vegetation) and the monitoring results. Finally, the Fact Sheets highlight each country’s awareness activities, relevant policies, and future plans to tackle air pollution at a national level.
All country Fact Sheets are available for download in open access and in their entirety, as well as the Summary of Fact Sheets.
The EANET Brochure
At the same time, EANET has released the latest version of its Brochure. The 15-pages’ document first sets out the environmental and regional context in which the Intergovernmental Initiative has emerged, justifying the need for regional cooperation to prevent the increasing trends of air pollution in East Asia, before entering into details on the definition of the region’s major pollutants and the mechanism of acid deposition. The Intergovernmental regional network’s objectives, major activities, and institutional framework are described, as well as the monitoring activities and EANET’s major achievements since 2001.
