Chapter 13: How can Asian industry contribute to climate change mitigation action?
This chapter examines three research* questions: i) can partial agreements be regarded as the second best?; ii) what is the potential role of the private sector, especially industry, in climate change mitigation?; and iii) what does fragmentation of partial agreements mean to Asia and its industry? To address these questions, two examples of partial agreements are introduced: the Global Superior Energy Performance partnership (GSEP) built upon the Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate (APP); and the Japanese Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM). The third example, the Vietnamese low carbon development strategy (LCDS), is highlighted to stress the importance of a policy framework to set enabling conditions.
