Secure, Low Carbon Pathways: National Dimensions

Stabilizing the level of greenhouse gases in the earth’s atmosphere to avoid the most dangerous impacts of global climate change is critical for Asian regional security and stability.

Stabilizing the level of greenhouse gases in the earth’s atmosphere to avoid the most dangerous impacts of global climate change is critical for Asian regional security and stability but emissions reductions cannot come at the undue expense of energy security and economic growth. The key, therefore, is to identify policy and technology solutions that reduce emissions while providing enough energy to maintain economic growth and development. Regional cooperation will be crucial to reaching collaborative strategies in the region for low carbon growth.

Project Highlights

  • Secure, low carbon pathways for China, Taiwan, India, Japan, Korea and the United States
  • Focus on trade-offs among economic growth, energy security and climate change
  • Expert group from a diverse set of specialists and stakeholders
