The Pacific Basin Consortium for Environment and Health

Promoting technology and information exchange on environment and health issues in the Pacific Basin.

Welcome to the Pacific Basin Consortium Website


The Pacific Basin region is facing unprecedented threats to human health and the environment from an array of human activities, including manufacturing, energy production, fossil fuel consumption, unsustainable resource use and agriculture.  These activities are associated with the growing problems of hazardous wastes, air and water pollution, occupational exposures, and climate change, among many others, and have far reaching effects on human health and the ecosystems upon which all life depends.

The Pacific Basin Consortium for Environment and Health (PBC) provides a forum for individuals and organizations with diverse professional expertise and geographic backgrounds to come together and discuss the most pressing environment and health issues of our time, engage in cooperative research, and develop and disseminate innovative strategies for addressing these issues and creating sustainable, affordable alternatives.
