USAID Summer Seminar: Asia's Future

Asia is at the nexus of the worlds most immediate and pressing environmental challenges stemming from economic development, population growth, rapid urbanization and industrialization, and unabated natural resource extraction and consumption, all resulting in a complex combination of local and regional-scale risks to the environment, human health and development.  USAID must adequately prepare to face these challenges.  How best to plan and conserve the environment while taking into account increasing demands for food and income, increasing pressures on natural and human environments, broad new challenges such as global climate change, and the drive for economic growth, energy independence, and stable democracies? This seminar will present the results of expert roundtables and the process for analyzing these drivers of change and discuss what can be done to conserve the environment and respond to climate change.
