Asia is the leading region in the world by the growth rate of cites’ population and economy, but also greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The main challenge is to facilitate a rapid growth of urban communities in Asia in a sustainable, resilient and low carbon manner, where circularity and sustainable waste management play a crucial role.
In Thailand, the Twelfth National Economic and Social Development Plan incorporates a challenge to continue to promote economic growth in the country while supporting a low carbon pathway to achieve this growth. Using Thailand as a case study, we will explore climate-related policies that support low carbon cities and the impact COVID-19 has had on urban plastic waste.
Join ERM and United Nations Development Program (UNDP), with guest speakers from Khon Kaen University and PTT Global Chemical, for this webinar to:
- Understand the impact COVID-19 had on cities’ carbon footprint and plastic waste.
- Learn how to reduce GHG emissions through plastic waste management.
- Hear inspirational examples for managing plastic waste in cities from public and private sector players in Thailand.
- Find out about an innovative tool that focuses on tackling plastic waste.
- Get information on how your organization can take the next step in your low carbon growth journey and to make cities more sustainable, resilient and liveable.
