ASEAN Workshop in Indonesia

Enhancing South-South Cooperation - December 2014 in Indonesia

UNEP will organise a workshop with the Ministry of Environment and the ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta in December 2014 to raise awareness of green economy-related concepts at the national level among government representatives and other stakeholders from the ASEAN region.

This workshop is part of the UNEP project “Enhancing South-South Cooperation - Building the Capacity of Developing Countries to Promote Green Economies”. The project aims to raise awareness of green economy-related concepts at the national level and to highlight the role of indicators for informed policymaking to support the transition towards a resource-efficient, low-carbon economy.

The workshop is expected to involve around 30 participants from 10 ASEAN member-states, presenters from UNEP’s partners in its “South-South Cooperation” project, as well as NGOs and international organisations involved in green economy-related issues.
