Low carbon green growth roadmap for Asia and the Pacific

3pm, July 21st, 2015

The Low carbon green growth roadmap for Asia and the Pacific provides policymakers in the region with a comprehensive list of policy options and practical implementing strategies to consider adopting to encourage green growth economy, based on their own national priorities and circumstances.

The objective of this module is to introduce participants to the significance of resource scarcity and climate change and how adopting low carbon green growth can provide win-win solutions for fostering inclusive sustainable development while mitigating and adapting to climate change.

The Asia-Pacific region stands at an important crossroads: high levels of economic growth have lifted great numbers of people out of poverty, and many of our development goals are now within reach. The region cannot realize this promise, however, by following the conventional growth strategies in the context of new challenges and uncertainties.

Green growth can help to achieve these goals by turning crises into opportunities and by promoting the development of an inclusive and sustainable Asia-Pacific region. The very structure of economies, ranging from governance and fiscal policies to lifestyles and infrastructure, has to be reshaped.
