SUSTAIN EU-ASEAN

Sustain and enhance cooperation on sustainable development between Europe and Southeast Asia

This coordinating action focuses on climate action, resource efficiency, and raw materials issues, and aims to enhance collaboration between researchers in the EU and the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) region. Addressing these issues in a coherent way is vital for sustainable development that leads to economic prosperity, social cohesion, and environmental integrity.  Both regions have developed innovative ideas to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, adapt to climate change, improve resource efficiency, and manage raw materials. SUSTAIN EU-ASEAN draws primarily on EU funded projects focusing on these issues from various programmes, such as the FP7, SWITCH-Asia, International cooperation, and others, and also feeds in experiences from the ASEAN region and bilateral projects into the mutual learning process. The approach taken by the project is driven primarily by the assumption that a wealth of knowledge has been generated by EU-funded projects and other initiatives relevant for the ASEAN region. However, the exploitation and uptake of these research results and potential joint innovations can still be improved, as can the collaboration between researchers from the EU and the ASEAN region. To facilitate this, but also to advance research initiated by Europe, SUSTAIN EU-ASEAN will:

  • identifies and clusters EU-funded projects on climate action, resource efficiency, and raw materials issues relevant for the ASEAN region, analyses thematic gaps, and funding and cooperation opportunities (WP1)
  • provides a number of services, such as project twinning, access to mobility funds, showcasing, and training to interested projects and institutions that aim to enhanced cooperation with ASEAN counterparts, initiates pilot actions to enhance uptake and implementation as show cases for EU-ASEAN cooperation (WP2)
  • facilitates vision building and the development of concrete proposals for more sustainable collaboration (WP3)
