Emerging Middle Class

Middle class (million) based on the number of people who can buy automobiles

  • 60s and 70s: if a Chinese person wanted to buy a bicycle, he had to save for a few years

  • Now: for some middle class families, it would only take 2 to 3 years to save and buy a car

Health Costs of Air Pollution

  • Asia1

  • An estimated 487,000 premature deaths occur each year due to outdoor air pollution.

  • China2

  • Environmental and health costs of air pollution in China is about 7 % of GDP [budget deficit in 2003 = 3.3% of GDP]5

  • Estimates shows that these costs could rise to 13% of China’s GDP by 2020

  • Bangkok

  • Health cost of air pollution

  • $640 million

  • $800 million by 2020

Costs of Air Pollution

Air pollution is becoming a major health threat in Asian cities

“An estimated 487,000 premature deaths in Asia occur each year due to outdoor air pollution”1

“ A total of 3,547 persons were killed in international terrorist attacks in 2001”2

  • 3 of the 4 warmest years on record came during the last 4 years

  • 2004 projected to be the 5th consecutive year in which the harvest falls short of consumption

Impact: water quality

Urban centers contribute more than 25% of the sewage in India

  • 63% of population in Asia without access to clean water

  • Infant mortality rates are 10 to 20 times higher in cities without adequate water and sanitation
