By the 1980s, the escalating environmental problems of Asia's megacities had become all too evident. Smoke-filled air, littered streets and polluted waterways were common features of urban centers, and such problems were growing unchecked.

MEIP aimed to look at the relationship between natural environmental systems and urban areas.
