About the product
Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda), and to support ASEAN Member States to implement the two agendas in an integrated way. The report presents a framework for identifying complementarities, and proposes a number of flagship initiatives to support ASEAN countries to simultaneously translate the ASEAN Vision 2025 and the 2030 Agenda from political aspiration to practical implementation. The report discusses complementarities at several levels of the ASEAN Vision and the 2030 Agenda, including: goals and objectives; values and operational principles; and the five cross-cutting themes of poverty eradication, infrastructure and connectivity, sustainable management of natural resources, sustainable production and consumption, and resilience. For these themes, the report provides analysis of the trend between 2000 and 2015 and offers scenarios for future development until 2030. The report concludes with proposals for concrete implementation mechanisms. As the sole regional multisectoral intergovernmental platform, ESCAP is harnessing the “universality” of the 2030 Agenda goals and targets, while promoting the regional policy consistency, coherence and coordination to reinforce the scaling and complementarity of the implementation of the ASEAN Vision 2025 and the 2030 Agenda.
