CSIS has completed an extensive study of Asian regional institutions and their response to nontraditional security challenges, "Asia's Response to Climate Change and Natural Disasters: Implications for an Evolving Architecture." The report includes an overview of the politics of climate change in Asia, an outline of the low carbon pathways specific Asian-Pacific countries are pursuing to meet emissions reduction targets, an assessment of the role of regional institutions in addressing climate change and the promise of the region's diverse efforts in disaster managment, as well as the implications for the future architecture of Asian security institutions. Attendees will receive a hard copy of the report.
This study is a product of the CSIS Asian Regionalism Initiative, generously funded by the MacArthur Foundation.
