image of Establishing a Resource-Circulating Society in Asia
This publication addresses the issues associated with sustainable resource-circulating societies. It focuses on Asia, where both population growth and economic growth are increasingly prominent in the global context. It covers topics related to technological or socioeconomic issues or a combination of both. It provides policymakers, business leaders and experts in the field with comprehensive knowledge concerning future visions, initiatives and practical applications in the promotion of a sustainable resource-circulating society in Asia.



Conclusion: Challenges to a resource-circulating society in Asia

It is virtually impossible to achieve an effective global resource-circulating system without promoting development of policy-making and practices of resource-efficient production and consumption in Asia. In this sense the policy directives towards the vision for a resource-circulating society are advancing in Asia, and this trend is perceived positively by the global community. However, there are still many difficult tasks ahead. For instance, unlike the IPCC task of tackling climate change, the resource-circulating society challenge is not yet integrated and unified in academia. This book intends to raise awareness of resource-circulating attempts in Asia and explore the challenges and opportunities for academia, governmental sectors and business firms.
