Title: Development of the Report on the State of  Climate Change in ASEAN Region

Client : Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES)

Project Cost: USD25,000.00

Duration: 9 months

Status : Completed

Team Leader: Prof. Dr. Ho Chin Siong



Southeast Asia is home to some of the most climate change-vulnerable countries in the world. Responding to the threats of climate change, the ASEAN Member States (AMS) have taken measures to address the issue at the national, regional and global levels. As part of their commitment to the Paris Agreement, a significant amount of data and information on the status of climate change in AMS as well as their efforts and initiatives have been produced. In addition, AMS has agreed to explore the possibility of developing a harmonized approach to measuring, reporting and verifying greenhouse gas emissions as the first step towards further regional collaboration on carbon markets, among others.

However, there is yet a coordinated effort at the regional level to collate, consolidate and synthesize them into a coherent report to provide information on the state of, trends in, and prospects for climate action in the region.

The project endeavours to provide an overall regional outlook on the issue encountered by AMS by developing a report on the state of climate change. The comprehensive report will support the AMS policy decision-making process and enhance transparency on climate actions under the Paris Agreement. Regional consultation meetings, coordination with national think-tanks and ASEAN Secretariat will be carried out to produce the following outputs:

  • Summary report of regional consultation meeting;
  • Methodology and framework for the report; and
  • Report on the state of climate change in ASEAN region.
