The Asia–Pacific region, which leads the global economy as a centre of growth, urgently needs to shift from the traditional twentieth-century type of industrial development, known as a “Brown Economy”, to a “Green Economy” that is underpinned by low-carbon development, improvement of resource efficiency and achievement of well-being for all.
The 2013 International Forum for Sustainable Asia and the Pacific (ISAP 2013) will focus on the incorporation of sustainability concepts into business practices, local initiatives for smart cities and emerging networks of researchers for low-carbon development. Discussions will be held with diverse stakeholders focusing on sustainable development.
The theme of ISAP 2013, organized by the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and UNU Institute of Advanced Studies (UNU-IAS), will be “Paving the Way for a Sustainable Asia-Pacific: Regional Perspectives on Green Economy”.
Simultaneous English–Japanese interpretation will be provided.
This two-day event is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required.
For more information, or to register, please see the conference announcement on the ISAP website.
