The Acid Deposition Monitoring Network in East Asia (EANET) started in 1998 as an intergovernmental initiative. At present, thirteen (13) countries participate in EANET (Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Russia, Thailand, and Vietnam).

The following are the objectives of the EANET:
1. Create a common understanding of the state of the acid deposition problems in East Asia;
2. Provide useful inputs for decision-making at local, national and regional levels aimed at preventing or reducing adverse impacts on the environment caused by acid deposition; and
3. Contribute to cooperation on the issues related to acid deposition among participating countries.
