Aims of this Conference
The urgency of the transition to a more sustainable energy future has been heightened by increasing concerns over climate impacts, energy security, and post-Fukushima nuclear risks. A large number of major energy transition plans have emerged at regional, national, and city levels, with various pathways and in different contexts. The Asian-Pacific region has played and will continue to play a pivotal role in global climate change impacts and responses.
This conference aims to:
- To provide a forum for academics and other stakeholders to share new governance practices of sustainable energy transitions from Asian perspectives;
- To shed light on the ways the Asian-Pacific countries differ in their energy transition; and
- To contribute to a better understanding of governance issues and challenges underpinning energy transitions, as well as opportunities of realising rapid transitions in this region and the global relevance.
