A rapid economic transition is underway in the Greater Mekong Sub-Region of Southeast Asia. With GDP growth rates among the six countries (Cambodia, the People's Republic of China, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam) averaging 6.6% in 2013, and with power demand expected to triple by 2025, governments and corporations will need to explore the full range of benefits that green economies can bring in order to ensure long lasting prosperity for all citizens.
To better understand how green economies make good policy and business sense, a regional consultation ‘New opportunities from natural wealth management’ will take place June 17th-20th in Bangkok. This four-day dialogue will bring together by invitation-only members of government, corporations, and major development organizations to highlight successful projects, tools, and methodologies to bring lasting financial, environmental, and social stability to the region.
The event will also launch the region-wide green economy dialogue, providing answers and sharing best practices on current initiatives and work streams related to economic valuation of natural capital, green production, innovative financing mechanisms, and policy incentives for conservation.
