Asia is facing serious environmental challenges including urban air pollution and global climate change. As the largest emitter of greenhouse gases, what happens in Asia will play a crucial role in determining the extent to which the world warms over coming decades.

This seminar will review key environmental challenges faced by the region and the growing opportunities for a transition to a cleaner economy powered by zero-emission energy sources. Economic mechanisms – including emissions pricing, reverse auctions, and green certificates schemes – have the potential to underpin a much greener development model for the Asian Century.

Associate Professor Paul Burke, Arndt-Corden Department of Economics, Crawford School of Public Policy, ANU
