MSc. Environmental Science / Environmental Technology for Sustainable Development

Over the last decade many developing countries have witnessed rapid economic growth rates of near double digits and the average population grew at the rate of 1.8% every year in the Asian region. As a result, finding sustainable solutions for environmental issues without compromising economic development has become a vital issue for the developing nations, as addressed in Target 9 of the MDGs.
