In the context of massive environmental problems in Southeast Asia, the countries in the region have decided -- at least in some instances -- to create regimes to solve these problems jointly. This empirical observation is surprising, given the Southeast Asian countries' general reluctance to regional cooperation, the governance and budgetary constraints... more...

How much is a cleaner environment worth? For policy makers, that question goes largely unanswered. It's not that the environment is seen as unimportant. It's simply much easier to compare the costs and benefits of tangible projects such as airports and electrical grids, than it is to weigh the merits of a landfill cleanup. Over the past decades,... more...
