With the global trend of urbanization and industrialization reaching unprecedented and upsetting proportions, environmental problems related to the over-consumption and depletion of resources and the increased output of wide-ranging types of waste are becoming more serious than ever. Since gas emission and waste generation, including wastewater and solid waste, are inevitable processes in urban development, many chemicals have been ubiquitously detected in biota and humans on a global scale linked to the exposure to human life described in numerous studies. These pollutions not only spoil urban landscapes but also cause disease for residents by way of air, soil, and water pollution in the long term. Therefore, it is crucial to highlight the health risks of waste streams, which themselves adversely pose to human health or are a medium for various organisms that threaten human health. On the other hand, to confront environmental challenges, technological advancements in environmental engineering have been developed substantially and greatly contributed to environmental protection and resource recovery. And more effort and collaboration between researchers, policymakers, and managers are also required. This session opens a discussion between Vietnamese and Japanese academics to share experience and technology development in ecological preservation in rapidly developing urban areas as part of efforts to raise public awareness of municipal waste generation, treatment, and their threat to human health.
