This United Nations report on the development and protection of sustainable energy resources in Asia and the Pacific was prompted by the region's rapid economic growth as well as concerns that current energy policies are not addressing such issues as pollution, escalating fuel costs and global warming. Written for policymakers and stakeholders, this volume gathers current UN data that carefully weighs a compromise between economic growth and energy security, especially as markets become globalized and therefore more competitive. Recommendations are made to remedy inefficient energy production and consumption in these countries, such as regional and sub-regional cooperation, innovation in energy technologies and increased investments to strengthen the current energy infrastructure.
