Dublin (Ireland)

The Asia-Europe Environment Forum (ENVforum) 6th Roundtable was held from 18 – 19 September in Dublin, Ireland. The roundtable which addresses about 40 specially-invited participants from the countries of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) focused on the following issues relevant to sustainable energy:

1. What are the implications of increasing energy consumption and economic growth for Asia and Europe? How has each region reacted to calls for greater sustainable energy policies?

2. What opportunities are available for Asia and Europe in ensuring the sustainability of energy while tackling climate change? How can the two regions work closer to promote clean and affordable energy? What are the enabling policies?

3. How could Asia and Europe harness cleaner fuels? In what forms can co-operation take place? How can Asia and Europe work together to tackle the challenges for further co-operation?

This roundtable is part of the Asia-Europe Environment Forum series; co-organised by the ASEF, the Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF), the Swedish Environmental Secretariat for Asia (SENSA), the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), the Korea Environment Institute (KEI) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). This roundtable is hosted by Institute of International and European Affairs, Ireland (IIEA).

ASEF's contribution is with the financial support of the European Commission.
