Abstract:Commonwealth countries in Asia are a mixed group, small in number but varying in size from Singapore to India. This paper starts by looking briefly at the current status of distance education in universities in Commonwealth Asia and then presents an overview of the current status and place of environmental education in a sample of higher-education institutions in some Commonwealth countries. Finally, the paper describes a survey conducted in a number of higher-education institutions specialising in distance education in Commonwealth nations across Asia, with subsequent considerations of trends seen in Pakistan.
