Climate Change Policy in the Asia/Pacific Region

Japan's Institute for Global Environmental Strategies has released its second white paper on climate change. Entitled Climate Change Policies in the Asia-Pacific: Re-uniting Climate Change and Sustainable Development, the report has four objectives:

  1. to feature the most important environmental policy agenda for the region in
    2008—a response to the challenges posed by climate change in Asia and the
    Pacific;
  2. to broadly summarise the current climate change situation in Asia and identify
    emerging issues, and to review effective policy approaches that have been
    adopted in the region;
  3. to present a number of broad policy recommendations that will promote
    sustainable development focussing on climate friendly development for the region,
    drawing from IGES research programmes, where appropriate; and
  4. to identify the critical policy research agenda over the next decade for the region.
