JCI-JSC-WP-2021-03: Options for Decarbonizing Malaysia

Publication date: June 2021 | Length of paper: 44 pages | ISBN: 978-967-5492-62-4

The ASEAN 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 research groups from Southeast Asia (Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia and Thailand, with potential participation from Brunei, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, and Viet Nam in the future). The Phase 1 report of each country team presents priorities and actions to date, and key technology and policy opportunities to further advance domestic climate action.

The Phase 1 regional report situates the region’s path to low-carbon transition within a global context using the country reports and other studies. This series of reports, produced through a synthesis of existing research and knowledge, builds the case for advancing the region’s climate agenda. Phase 2 of the ASEAN Green Future project will undertake quantitative assessments of the different options for decarbonizing the ASEAN countries.
