"This book is based on the recognition that low-carbon green growth is an imperative, not a luxury, for developing Asia. Heavily dependent on imported resources and energy, the emerging economies of Asia are already embarking on the application of a new sustainable development paradigm that brings competitiveness to its industries and serves growing green technology markets. Asia’s current policy experiences and aspirations for tackling climate change through multi-sectoral, multi-level approaches demonstrate that there are benefits in the short term as well as the medium and long term. The book focuses on the emerging economies of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), India, Indonesia, Thailand, Viet Nam and Singapore, with Japan, the Republic of Korea and Australia as reference cases (Table 1). This book analyses low-carbon green growth strategies in the broader development context of Asia, and focuses on climate change mitigation rather than adaptation, pollution control or the theory of policymaking" (excerpt from the book)
