Call for Articles

The Asia Pacific Journal on Environment and Development (Print ISSN 1023-7895) is a refereed international journal published by Bangladesh Unnayan Parishad (BUP) Dhaka since 1994. It comes out twice in a year- in June and December and aims to publish papers on diverse issues linking the environment and economic development. Under the new arrangement, Dhaka School of Economics (DScE) in association with BUP publishes the journal on a regular basis.
Development and environment are not essentially contradictory, but can be so in practice depending on the manner in which natural resources are used and preserved. Development activities in any society are highly influenced by the access to natural resources and may also be responsible for environmental degradation, which ultimately affects the economic health of that society. With unprecedented expansion of global economic activities and indiscriminate destruction of the environment, how to maintain a balanced relationship between economy and environment is a serious global research and policy agenda. In order to understand such problems, and to consider strategies and policies for dealing with them, an interdisciplinary perspective must be brought to bear on development-environment linkages. As research in this fast developing field multiplies, there is an urgent need in the region for a medium which will provide a forum for debate on pertinent issues and dissemination of relevant research findings. This journal is in response to this need. In general, it seeks to publish articles that are interdisciplinary in nature and adopt an integrated approach to environment and development. While the emphasis is on works directly related to the Asia-Pacific region, it does not exclude articles on global problems or on other regions that have high relevance to this region.

Scope
