10 Opportunities to Build Resilience to Climate, COVID and Economic Crises in Asia

3 min read In June, a forest community in northern Thailand was awarded the prestigious Equator Prize by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). With some support from RECOFTC and our partners, the Wetland Forest Conservation Group of the village Boon Rueang convinced the government to conserve the largest wetland forest in the Ing River basin rather than develop a special economic zone. Since that momentous achievement, made through advocacy and dialogue, the Group has pioneered a community forestry model that is successfully protecting biodiversity, storing carbon, providing food and livelihoods, and enabling the community to preserve its identity and culture. This model even helped the community successfully weather the COVID-19 pandemic.

A Shareholder Say on Climate Is Crucial For Climate Action

4 min read Companies are responsible for at least 35% of global greenhouse gas emissions, but only a small fraction disclose their emissions or have a credible plan to reduce them. The situation in Asia is  particularly worrying. While East Asia’s big 3s – China, Japan and South Korea – are setting strong signals to their domestic sectors, only 1 of the 32 top-emitting Asian companies targeted by the Climate Action 100+ initiative has set short-term targets to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

An Innovative Approach to Investing in Climate Resilient Economic Growth

There is an urgent need to stimulate private sector investment into areas highly disrupted by climate change, such as food production, water and natural environment, infrastructure, disaster risk management and nature based solutions. Climate finance for these sectors is critical to advance the Sustainable Development Goals, including alleviating poverty and supporting the most vulnerable groups. The question remains: how can we significantly scale up investment into goods and services which build resilience to the effects of climate change?
