Rainer Quitzow, Wu, Libo; Klaus Jacob; FES Berlin, July 2013
The study provides an overview of development trends and environmental performance as well as policy strategies to promote green growth in seven Asian countries — China, India, Indonesia, Philippines, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam.Despite emerging green growth strategies and green industries in the region, Asian economies are far from becoming green, resource - efficient and sustainable. The emerging discourse on green growth and climate change offers both opportunities as well as new challenges for promoting a broader greening of Asian economies. There are various entry - points and recommendations for policy action, including an appropriate institutional framework and fiscal incentives as well as the support to environmental innovations and decent green job creation.
