Asia and the Pacific countries are increasingly aware of the importance of a healthy environment for the sustainable development of their economies and societies. However, accelerating environmental degradation and natural resource depletion are undermining the region’s potential to achieve this ambition. The region’s great diversity offers an opportunity to address these problems, build resilience and create sustainable prosperity for today’s populations and future generations. These opportunities include solutions based on smart cities, renewable energy, the data revolution, and a more holistic and integrated approach based on the SDGs.
