Over half of global land-based plastic waste leakage into the ocean originates in just five Asian countries. Yet, the
contribution of informal waste management to reducing pollution, remains largely overlooked. The United
Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) is gathering evidence in pilot cities in
Asia to identify opportunities to return plastic resources into the production cycle by linking informal and formal
Energy Transition Pathways for the 2030 Agenda in Asia and the Pacific: Regional Trends Report on Energy for Sustainable Development 2018
The Asia-Pacific region’s rapid and sustained economic growth, increasing population, and rapid urbanization are driving growth in energy demand. Ensuring that supplies of energy are adequate to meet this growth in ways that are socially, economically and environmentally responsible creates a new set of challenges for policymakers. The transition to 2030 energy pathway, which is aimed at addressing those challenges, has four coherent and interlinked objectives – increased energy supply to meet growing demand, improved energy security, meeting the SDG7 targets and achieving the NDCs.
This Compendium provides a review of available tools related to the integration of environment into policy and planning in order to deliver sustainable development in the Asia and Pacific region. In the context of this task, the term ‘tools’ is interpreted broadly in order to ensure that as wide a range of potential tools and processes as possible is considered that could be used to integrate the environmental considerations of sustainable development into the Policy Cycle.
Indonesia: su-re.coffee: Synergizing climate change mitigation and adaptation through supporting farmers in utilizing clean bioenergy and climate smart agriculture
Indonesia is an ethnically and culturally diverse country with almost 260 million of people spread across more than 17000 islands. Along with the significant economic growth of the country on the past decade, the energy consumption is also steadily increasing altogether with the emissions of greenhouse gases, pushing Indonesia into the 7th largest emitter in the world (Friedrich et al., 2015).
