Welcome to the ESCAP Virtual Conference on Integrating Environmental Considerations into Economic Policy Making Processes.
Throughout the Asia Pacific Region, people from all levels of government and the private sector are finding ways to achieve economic development without destroying the environmental base that sustains us and the natural resources that support our existence and our economies. The objective of this programme is to find and examine the good experiences in the region, and use the ideas and practices to enhance everyone's efforts to achieve sustainable development. We call them "good practice examples" instead of "success stories" in an attempt to give fair judgement on country examples, rather than to decide whether they are "successes" or "failures".
Welcome note will give you a briefing on the purpose and structure of this project.
You are invited to the Orientation Hall, where you will find a summary of findings on what makes projects successful and how you can use this information in your own programmes. You can contribute to the project by nominating new good practices examples for this Virtual Conference Programme.
Enter the Conference Hall to explore the current examples and evaluations of good practices from Asia and the Pacific.
Or visit the Document Centre for contacts, links, and a bookshelf of papers and training materials.
We appreciate your interest in the project and hope that you will be able to make a meaningful contribution yourself. Please send us your comments and suggestions, or nominate good examples you know, in the Ballot Box.
