The Asian Economic Forum is embarking on a journey to explore how economic policies in Asia and more specifically in South East Asia could meaningfully impact Climate Change.
Our objective is to explore via Dialogue with a multitude of stakeholders (to include the private sector) the positive impacts that potential policies could have for Sustainable Development and measurable advancements for the transition of the economy away from carbon to enable meaningful carbon emission reductions as prescribed by the UNFCCC.
To initiate this Dialogue we have initiated a series of discussions which we are calling:
The first of these discussions took place on Tuesday, June 4th, 2019 in association with the Myanmar Economic Forum in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar.
The subject of this first discussion was:
Energy diversification & reforms as drivers of stability & peace
We are extremely grateful to H.E. Mrs. Dorothee Janetzke-Wenzel, The Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany for her valuable perspectives and her presentation on “ENERGIEWENDE – Transformation of the German Energy System”
The next subsequent discussion on Climate Change Economics is scheduled to be held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
(tentative date: Thursday, November 7th, 2019; Subject matter to be announced soon).
To highlight valuable data, insights and perspectives to policy makers within the Asia geography and beyond, we are in the process of bringing together a small group of domain experts and practitioners as Non-Resident Fellows to the Asian Economic Forum.
The first of these Non-Resident Fellows will be collaborating from within the:
Climate Change Policy Group & Renewable Energy Policy Group at Climate Change Economics
As proponents for long term sustainable economic development and advancement of Asian economies and the stability of their underlying financial markets, the Asian Economic Forum initiated in 2018 the first Indo-Pacific Dialogue to gain valuable insights and perspectives on the US engagement strategy for this region.
