Reframing of Global Strategies and Regional Cooperation Pathways for an Inclusive Net-Zero Strategy in the Energy Transition Framework
As carbon dioxide emission reductions become increasingly urgent to counter climate change, many nations have announced net-zero emissions targets.
Achieving a net-zero economy will require the decarbonization of electricity generation, massive expansion of low-carbon energy systems, and investment in net-zero-carbon technologies. These adjustments must consider the existing energy, economic, and social development imperatives of advanced and developing countries, while encouraging regional cooperation.
This brief assesses energy transition challenges for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and the Gulf Cooperation Council, and proposes new policy pathways toward an inclusive global net-zero economy.
