Low Carbon Green Growth Roadmap for Asia and the Pacific: Turning resource constraints and the climate crisis into economic growth opportunities

The Low Carbon Green Growth Roadmap for Asia and the Pacific is offered to member States to help their policymakers turn the till-now trade-off between the ecological crisis and economic growth into a synergy in which resource constraints and climate crisis become opportunities for the growth necessary to reduce poverty in the region.

Despite the increasing demands for policy options to make economic development green, a clear blueprint that can lead us to a green economy, especially developing countries, is not yet readily available.

This Roadmap bridges the gap by providing five tracks for an economic system change to pursue green growth as a new economic development path. The Roadmap draws upon innovative approaches and experiences in promoting low carbon green growth in the region, and in particular from the Republic of Korea.
