The International Forum for Sustainable Asia and the Pacific (ISAP) is a forum aiming to promote information sharing and facilitate diverse discussions on sustainable development in Asia and the Pacific, with the participation of front-line experts and diverse stakeholders from international organisations, governments, business and NGOs.
Climate change has become a reality and there is now no time to waste. We must take action to mitigate the changes and also to cope with their impacts. The Asia-Pacific has seen increased GHG emissions from major economies across the region, with socially‐marginalised populations being particularly affected. Resource limitation is another major challenge facing sustainable development in this region. To cope with changes in the natural, social and economic systems and to pass on various assets to the next generation, we need to shift from current development trends, and promote low‐carbon and inclusive development in which people of all backgrounds are engaged in creating opportunities and sharing benefits.
ISAP2014 aims to gather various key stakeholders and ensure that their voices can be linked with regional and international discussions that we hope will continue to 2015 and beyond.
