1In 2009, ice is melting daily by 60,000㎡~ 70,000㎡. This rate is equivalent to that of Korean peninsular disappearing within 3 days.

Global warming and climate changes are caused by growth and enlargement activities of human beings, and it may pose serious global problems.
The unusually high speed at which the ice in North Pole is melting away may eventually dissipate all glaciers.

2In the 21st century, Asian area shows the highest global warming speed

Asia makes up half of the world population, 1/3 of the world where the rapid growth is taking place.
Therefore Asia is the potential region having a huge impact on global warming. The best way to mitigate
global warming is to control GHG emission in Asian area systematically following lessons from developed countries.

3The frequency of natural disaster due to climate changes has also
    increased greatly.

Since the 1960s drought, typhoon, tempest, tsunami and disease due to climate changes have surged.
The natural climate change is unpredictable and is a huge threat to mankind.

We should achieve sustainable development via balancing
environment, economy and society for our next generation.

Economic growth in the past has sacrificed environmental stability and social equity.
This results in lowering ecosystem stability, social balance and intensifying class conflict. In order to cope with
and mitigate this challenge, 'Sustainable Development' has appeared as the new paradigm.
Most developed countries have shifted their priorities from growth to Sustainable Development.
