Taiwan's energy and environmental policies: Past, present and future


  • Price, T. J.
  • Probert, S. D.


Taiwan's current economic success is partly the result of nearly half a century of careful government planning. However, the dramatic rise in the prosperity of this relatively small island has produced an almost proportional decline in Taiwan's natural-environment endowment. A critique of past energy policies, with respect to transportation, is presented, with a look ahead to Taiwan's environmental challenges. Transport policy recommendations are made which will enable the Taiwanese people to achieve a less environmentally damaging, more sustainable economic prosperity.
