There is international consensus to change the global system in order to pursue growth and development in a sustainable manner. Sustainable Development looks to balance the environmental, social, and economic concerns that we face as a society. It is based on the conceptual framework that development should meet the needs of the present while taking into consideration important limitations, ensuring that future generations are able to meet their own needs.

The Asia-Europe Environment Forum (ENVforum) has been working on the thematic area of Sustainable Development since 2013. The ultimate goal of our activities is to provide a platform for exchange between Asia and Europe on how Sustainable Development could be achieved. We support the global process towards Sustainable Development by:

  • Conducting research on Climate Change, as well as the conceptualisation, monitoring, and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Creating capacity building workshops to support government officials in Climate Change policy/negotiation and mainstreaming the SDGs into national policymaking
  • Organising conferences to promote knowledge sharing between development experts and governments on the topic of sustainable development.

This page will be updated throughout the year – we encourage you to check back for updates!
