Saving the Planet and Making Profit: A Nexus Governance Approach for ASEAN

28 June 2018

ASEAN , Energy , Environment , Sustainable Development Goals

ASEAN has put together an ambitious sustainable development agenda with its 2025 community vision. It has also played an important role in shaping the United Nations 2020 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Agenda.

There is a need for large scale investment and significant improvement in services in order to address supply shortages, increase general welfare and make profit.  After all, there are 65 million people across the region with no access to modern energy sources, 48 million people ASEAN-wide with no access to clean drinking water, and another 78 million without adequate sanitation facilities.
