Special Issue on Expediting Decarbonization in Developing Asia: Call for Papers

The urgency of decarbonizing Asia is pivotal in achieving the global climate target of limiting the temperature increase to 1.5°C by 2100, especially considering that developing Asia contributes approximately 35% of worldwide energy-related carbon dioxide emissions. In light of this imperative, we invite scholars and experts to contribute to a special issue of Asia & the Pacific Policy Studies, dedicated to exploring policies aimed at expediting decarbonization in developing Asia.

Submissions should be received by 1 September 2024.
