The Asia Pacific Sustainable Development Journal, Vol. 30, No. 2, produced in collaboration with the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Institute, contains a thematic section of five papers based on the theme “Regional sustainable development cooperation in Central Asian countries”, guest edited by Ghulam Samad, Senior Research Specialist (Research Division), and coordinated by Emma Tong of the CAREC Institute. The theme papers focus on various aspects of regional cooperation, ranging from low-carbon energy development to trade, transport and digital connectivity among Central Asian countries. They offer specific policy recommendations in their respective areas of study, which are useful for policymakers.

Aligning with the special theme, the survey paper is focused on the North and Central Asian landlocked developing countries. In particular, the paper examines the challenges and opportunities related to transport, energy and ICT connectivity in the nine landlocked developing countries of North and Central Asia.
