Abstract

Dust and Sandstorm (DSS) has become a severe social-environmental phenomenon in countries across Northeast Asia. The impacts of DSS, a transboundary problem, are not limited to the countries of origin. DSS causes considerable hardship and loss of income, disrupts communications, and presents serious public health problems. In extreme cases, it causes death, extensive destruction of livestock and crops, and damaged ecosystems. This brochure details ADB's regional technical assistance (RETA) project for the Prevention and Control of Dust and Sandstorms in Northeast Asia.
