The report, Keeping Track of Our Changing Environment in Asia and the Pacific uses the latest data and statistics to illustrate the major environmental, economic and social changes that have taken place in Asia and the Pacific since 1992, the year that countries around the world put forth their commitment to move towards sustainable development.
It portrays the region’s dramatic development in helping to bring millions out of poverty in the past 20 years.
The comprehensive data also uncovers the unfinished social and environmental agendas on which future growth depends. The findings complement previous research work of UNEP that has highlighted the need for a systemic change in natural resources use in Asia and the Pacific.
