Challenges and comparative advantages in sustainable development provide unique opportunities for Asia and Europe in future cooperation.
A newly released KAS comparative survey of experts in China, India, Russia and the USA shows that there are many differences between the four countries, but also some similarities. It particularly highlights the fact that preventing climate change is still not a major motivating factor when it comes to reducing emissions.
Central Asia has become a focal point of the energy politics of China, Russia, and the EU. This bears great potential for establishing a transcontinental energy supply, but also risks due to diverging geopolitical interests. A legal framework is needed for investments and a constructive cooperation.
The Regional Project Energy Security and Climate Change Asia-Pacific, based in SAR Hong Kong, PR China, supports the political dialogue between decision makers in the region and with Europe concerning challenges of the energy and climate policy. The project develops solutions and concrete projects of sustainability in politics, economy and society.
