International Conference on Asian Environmental Chemistry (ICAEC)
Environmental chemistry and sound management of hazardous chemicals are becoming important in East Asia where industries are rapidly growing and peoples are becoming more conscious to the pollution problems. Environmental chemicals are also a matter of international affairs as they move in the global scale and international conventions have been working on such as the Basel convention, London convention and Stockholm convention. Therefore, ICAEC organized the international conference in other countries; the first time in Hawaii and the second time in Korea three years ago.
Reason why JEC will hold ICAEC 2014 in Thailand
Accompanied with rapid economic growth of South East Asian countries, environmental pollution in these countries has become major concern in recent years. Japan experienced severe environmental pollution due to economic growth several decades ago, including Minamata disease (methyl mercury poisoning) and Kanemi Yusho (PCB intoxication). In order to establish sound management of chemicals and prevent the re-occurrences of similar pollution incidences, it is useful to share the experiences of Japan among South East Asian countries. (In the ICAEC, stakeholders including researchers in both countries will discuss to prevent environmental pollution by micro-pollutants.)
Thailand is a leading country in the South East Asian region and plays as a hub of networks by hosting many international activities related to environmental protection. Furthermore, many Thai researchers have studied in Japan while Japanese researchers have also worked in Thailand. Since active collaborations between the two countries have been carried out, Thailand is most suitable place for discussing the above topic.
Goal of ICAEC 2014
The goal is to attain sustainable development and better environment in South East Asian countries.
Outcome of ICAEC 2014
The expected outcomes are as follows;
- To declare importance to prevent pollution by micro-pollutants (declare a statement)
- To make clear environmental pollution by micro-pollutants in South East Asia, East Asia and South Pacific region
- To strengthen relationship of researchers, particularly young researchers between Thailand and Japan
