This inaugural episode will discuss “The ASEAN Climate and Energy Paradox”, recently published at Energy and Climate Change. The article carries out a multisectoral qualitative analysis (MSQA) and policy integration analysis of six sectors important for climate mitigation in Southeast Asia in order to assess the status of the climate-energy nexus in the region. It concludes that Southeast Asia will be heavily affected by climate change but the mitigation efforts of the member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) are incommensurate with the threat they face.

ASEAN Researchers Network on Energy and Climate Change (ARNECC) is a group of scholars, analysts, researchers, students, and other stakeholders organized around the themes of “energy studies/research” and “climate studies/research” in Southeast Asia. ARNECC was established by the ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) through ASEAN Climate Change and Energy Project (ACCEPT).
ARNECC Paper Talks is a regular discussion among scholars about the published papers and articles on energy and climate change in Southeast Asia. In case you want your published paper to be featured, please contact [email protected].
