This study demonstrates how the growing importance of international product fragmentation and intermediate goods in international trade has altered the links between exchange rates and international trade flows. This publication is not intended to provide comprehensive coverage of the topic. The focus is not on the macroeconomic determinants of nominal or real exchange rates.

The Asia-Pacific region is rapidly urbanizing. While this transformation is benefitting many economies it has placed enormous pressure on natural resources and the urban environment. In large part this is a result of inefficiencies and exploitation of resources without necessary attention to limits or costs. If the region is to benefit from its urban future, it must shift towards eco-efficient and climate resilient models underpinned by the need to build more sustainable, equitable and resilient cities.
