Contents Notes
Climate Change and Energy Security Post-Cancún: Indonesia Perspective -- Engaging Emerging Countries: Implications of China's Major Shifts in Climate Policy -- India's Efforts to Maintain and Enhance Energy Security While Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions -- Korea's New Vision of Low Carbon Green Growth -- Singapore's Policy Response to Climate Change: Towards A Sustainable City -- Policy Responses to Climate Change and Energy Security Post -- Cancun: Implications for the Asia -- Pacific Region's Energy Security-Australian Perspective. This multidisciplinary volume articulates the current and potential public policy discourse between energy security and climate change in the Asia-Pacific region, and the efforts taken to address global warming. This volume is unique as it analyses two important issues -climate change and energy security -- through the lens of geopolitics at the intersection of energy security. It elaborates on the current and potential steps taken by state and non-state actors, as well as the policy innovations and diplomatic efforts (bilateral and multilateral, including regional) that states are pursuing. This Brief stems from the assumption that its audience is aware of the consequences of climate change, and will therefore, only look at the issues identified. It provides a useful read and reference for a wide-range of scholars, policymakers, researchers and post-graduate students.
