Asia-Pacific is one of the most vulnerable regions to climate change and impacts are projected to become more intense in the future. It also accounts for nearly half of global greenhouse gas emissions. UNEP supports countries confront this dual challenge of adapting to a changing climate at the same time as addressing greenhouse gas emissions.
In Asia Pacific, UNEP focuses on:
- Understand technology needs and facilitate technology transfer for adaptation and mitigation
- Integrating climate change into national and sectoral policies and plans
- Facilitate readiness for and access to finance
- Improve understanding & knowledge sharing
