Member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) are already raising their climate commitments to meet the Paris Agreement aspiration of limiting global warming to 1.5°C.

This series of reports from the ASEAN Green Future project builds the economic and technical case for the region to decarbonize. 

The Green Future project is a collaboration between the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, ClimateWorks Australia, the Jeffrey Sachs Center on Sustainable Development at Sunway University, and five national research groups from across Southeast Asia (Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Malaysia, and Thailand). The project aims to demonstrate how sustainable, decarbonized economies offer enhanced economic development and more resilient futures for the region. It also acknowledges actions already underway and the need for financing and support. 

Phase 2 of the project will undertake quantitative assessments of the different options for decarbonizing ASEAN countries in 2022.


  • Cambodia’s path towards decarbonization by 2050
  • Accelerating Indonesia’s climate agenda to achieve sustainable development
  • Decarbonization in Lao PDR: the options and challenges
  • Options for decarbonizing Malaysia
  • Accelerating climate actions and decarbonization strategies in Thailand
