Asia and the Pacific 2012: Sustaining Human Progress in a Changing Climate

2013 Human Development Award for Excellence

In the run-up to Rio+20, this Asia-Pacific Human Development Report takes a bold look at climate change and what can be done about it.

Tackling head-on the issue of poverty reduction and human development, the Report argues that the option to grow now, clean up later no longer exists for developing countries.

The Report reveals how the world's most dynamic region can prepare itself, produce and consume differently, build rural resilience and create cities for the future we want.
