Abstract

Since 1952, planners of the Republic of China (Taiwan) have directed much of their attention to the modernization of the country's economy. It is only recently, however, that they have begun turning their attention to bottlenecks in the economy and to some of the less desirable effects of the modernization process. They have thus begun to concentrate their efforts on problems of transportation, housing, urban development, education and manpower training, population growth, and water and air pollution. This article deals with the nature of water and air pollution problems in Taiwan and discusses how the various levels of government have responded to them. Although available data are often technically and temporally disparate and spatially concentrated in the major cities, especially Taipei, they are nevertheless presented since they constitute the basis for current planning and legislation.
