Environmental management and planning is now considered as a new field of professional expertise. There are even associations grouping interested professionals. So far, urban environmental management has only been considered as part of environmental management. But, since the Rio Conference in 1992 and along with the new focus of urban management on environmental problems, urban environmental management can be looked at as a new professional field. Traces the emergence of the field and tries to identify the new skills required. Raises the question of formal training, in higher education, for a new type of professional. Refers to an initiative taken by the Asian Institute of Technology (Bangkok) to propose and offer a new graduate programme in this field.
