ABSTRACT
The core issue of environmental governance is the way societies deal with environmental problems. It concerns interactions among formal and informal institutions and actors within society that influence how environmental problems are identified and framed. The purpose of this note is to review and survey the current state of environmental governance in Asian developing countries in a comparative manner, with special reference to case studies of China, Thailand and India, the most influential countries in each sub-region of Asia. This note reveals that, although many positive trends have been found recently in environmental governance of Asian countries, their environmental governance systems have not yet developed satisfactorily at the national level.
