The Asia-Pacific region leads the global economy as a centre of growth, and urgently needs to shift from the traditional twentieth century type of industrial development known as “Brown Economy” to a “Green Economy” underpinned by low-carbon development, improving resource-efficiency and achieving well-being for all.

ISAP2013 will focus on 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.
