30 Aug 8th SDSWR: Main Highlights Video
While ASEAN is likely to see an increase in carbon emissions as countries seek to recover from the pandemic, opportunities lie in nature-based solutions and regional carbon markets. To harness these opportunities to the fullest and to reduce carbon emissions, multilateral partnerships among countries as well as ASEAN’S agribusiness and forestry companies is critical. This was one of the key observations made at the SIIA’s 8th Singapore Dialogue on Sustainable World Resources (SDSWR).
The 8th edition of the SDSWR was themed, “Positioning Agribusiness and Forestry for the Future: Turning Risk into Opportunity”. Held virtually on 25 May 2021, the conference examined ASEAN countries’ low-carbon policies and how nature-based solutions can contribute to climate goals. The virtual event attracted more than 300 registrants who are policy makers, industry experts, corporate leaders, and key decision-makers from around the world, in particular, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore.
