ASEAN IMPLEMENTATION OF SCIENCE-BASED TARGETS Data and Ambition Loops in the Southeast Asian Region: Opportunities and Challenges
About the Webinar

Climate change is one of the top security concerns in Southeast Asia. As one of the most vulnerable regions to climate change with two-thirds of its population living in low-lying coastal areas, the region is recording an increase in greenhouse gas emissions. Southeast Asia contributed 3.6% of global emissions in 2013. By 2040, the region’s contribution to global emissions is projected to soar from 4.1% to 6.5%. Despite the awareness of the scale and urgency of the climate emergency, current government initiatives to mitigate climate impacts are insufficient. The webinar will discuss the role of the private sector as a wing of support to governments in fostering more ambitious climate actions through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). It will discuss the opportunities of SBTi in providing companies in Southeast Asia a pathway to future-proof growth. The webinar also aims to share knowledge and experience in enhancing data transparency, scope out opportunities for ambitious climate actions, and to build up a network for experts and participants from international and regional institutions and the private sectors as well.
