Asia-Pacific progress in sustainable energy: a global tracking framework 2017 regional assessment report
The Asia-Pacific report, Global Tracking Framework 2017: Asia-Pacific Progress in Sustainable Energy, is developed by ESCAP in cooperation with ADB. It offers an evidence-based look at progress at the regional and country levels, providing an overview of long-term trends since 1990, and focuses on progress achieved in the most recent period, 2012–2014. Furthermore, in the report, the key drivers behind progress are reviewed, and major challenges in achieving energy access, efficiency, and renewable energy objectives are identified. Evidence is drawn from the GTF data, as well as other international sources to provide a comprehensive view of progress in regional and national contexts. A strong focus is also placed on examining national policy frameworks and offering case studies to illustrate national approaches to common challenges faced by countries advancing the sustainable energy agenda.
