WEMO 2019: Southeast Asia, India & China

Publish date:

At the outset of transition

Southeast Asia is among the most vulnerable areas in the world in terms of climate change—a position that is unlikely to improve as demand continues to grow and fossil fuel investments outpace that of renewables.

Further, while policy measures, technological innovation, financial support, and public campaigns are increasingly taking aim at climate change, a significant policy implementation gap across the region remains. Many countries have failed to adopt any progressive policies and strategies, making it all but impossible to unify efforts across the region.

As the International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts energy demand in Southeast Asia to increase approximately 60 percent by 2040, this region must take dramatic efforts to wean its use of fossil fuels, embrace renewable sources and work collaboratively to effect change.
