  • In order to realize a sustainable and resilient TSL and its basin, this policy guide suggests three resilience enhancement measures: i) Ecohydrological resilience enhancement measures...
Policy Brief
ASEAN Centre for Energy Policy Brief

1. The ASEAN State of Climate Change Report (ASCCR) presented ASEAN’s mitigation goal: i) Achieve net-zero greenhouse
gas (GHG) emissions as early as possible in the latter half of the 21st century; and ii) Cap peak GHG emissions as soon
as possible after 2030 to ensure the net-zero GHG emission goal is met on schedule.
2. However, the updated...

Book Chapter
In China's Carbon-Energy Policy and Asia's Energy Transition: Carbon Leakage, Relocation and Halos

India has an ambitious renewable energy target for the decades ahead. However, the targets are faced with two critical impediments: (1) the lack of an internationally competitive renewable equipment manufacturing industry domestically and (2) the overdependency on external supply sources for equipment and machinery. The chapter finds that, despite...

The extensive work on the increasing burden of aerosols and resultant climate implications
shows a matter of great concern. In this study, we investigate the aerosol optical depth (AOD)
variations in the Indian Himalayan Region (IHR) between its plains and alpine regions and the
corresponding consequences on the energy balance on the Himalayan...

The Paris Agreement sets the goal to limit the global warming to well below 2 °C and preferably 1.5 °C. The recent IPCC report warned that 1.5 °C-warming may occur much earlier than expected. To meet the 1.5 °C target, global emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) should be net zero by 2050 or earlier. Increasing number of countries, local...

Illumination variations in non-atmospherically corrected high-resolution satellite (HRS) images acquired at different dates/times/locations pose a major challenge for large-area environmental mapping and monitoring. This problem is exacerbated in cases where a classification model is trained only on one image (and often limited training data) but...

Peatlands in Indonesia are subject to subsidence in recent years, resulting in significant soil organic carbon loss. Their degradation is responsible for several environmental issues; however, understanding the causes of peatland subsidence is of prime concern for implementing mitigation measures. Here, we employed time-series Small BAseline Subset...

Discussion Paper

Hydrogen is a potentially transformative multi-functional fuel that could help many countries achieve ambitious decarbonisation targets. High concentrations of heavy industries and rising transport emissions make hydrogen’s potential particularly enticing in Asia. However, hydrogen’s widespread deployment requires assessing multiple dimensions of...
