One underlying factor for this destruction of forests is market failure. Forests are cleared for other land uses or degraded...
Policy Brief
UNESCAP - Urban Nexus Policy Brief 2019
Key messages ✓ Cities are home to over half of the world’s population and are centers of growing resource demand. In many cities, the immense demand for resources is driven by the conventional silo approach to resource management, inefficient production systems, and resource-intensive lifestyles. Efforts to improve efficiency in urban systems by...
Policy Brief
UNESCAP - Urban Nexus Policy Brief 2019
Key Messages: ✓ The Asia-Pacific region is the world’s largest emitter of GHGs, and its cities account for a major share of these emissions. Out of the top 10 CO2 emitting cities globally, six are located in the region. Asia-Pacific cities have key roles to play in achieving the 1.5oC/2oC global climate targets. ✓ A total of 45 countries in the...

In Asia-Pacific Landscape Transformations: Solutions for Sustainability
Food production and productivity improvements have contributed to lifting millions of people out of poverty and reduced hunger and malnutrition, but are associated with patterns of land intensification that have degraded agricultural land and caused great environmental harm. Underlying drivers affecting land conversion to and from agriculture...
Book Chapter
In Asia-Pacific Landscape Transformations: Solutions for Sustainability
Key messages - Inherent complexity in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a barrier to their application to land management. A better conceptual understanding can guide governments and other actors in the Asia-Pacific region to develop a coherent view of how the SDGs apply to land. - Reorganisation of the SDGs and their targets related to...
