3 November 2023 – This week marked the start of Kiribati’s journey in the development of its first industrial policy. This follows the adoption of the Kiribati 20-Year Vision 2016-2036, or KV20, recognizing the role of developing key priority sectors to tackle socio-economic challenges and drive sustainable growth and advance development goals.

The Kiribati Industrial Policy aims to serve as a comprehensive, whole-of-economy strategy, setting out sectoral pathways to achieve economic growth and development objectives. This is particularly crucial for small island developing state (SIDS) like Kiribati, whose socio-economic development trajectory is influenced by its geographical remoteness and geological made-up, with small and highly dispersed population across 21 inhabited islands. Impact of unusual changes in climate and unexpected global events has also exacerbated the risks and challenges Kiribati faces to accelerate sustainable development.

In ensuring an inclusive process, an inception session to introduce the development of the Kiribati Industrial Policy was held 1 November 2023, with follow-up bilateral consultations over the following days, as part of the early stakeholder engagement efforts.

The Kiribati Industrial Policy will be developed by the Ministry of Tourism, Commerce, Industry and Cooperative (MTCIC) oversee the development of the Kiribati Industrial Policy the next 12 months, with the technical support from the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP).

Background and objectives

The Asian and Pacific Network for Testing of Agricultural Machinery (ANTAM) is an initiative led by ESCAP’s Centre for Sustainable Agricultural Mechanization (CSAM) that aims to harmonize testing standards and requirements for agricultural machinery in the Asia-Pacific region. This has the ultimate goal of facilitating trade of quality, safe, efficient and environmentally sound agricultural machinery in support of the Sustainable Development Goals. ANTAM was recognized as a good practice in South-South and Triangular Cooperation for Sustainable Development by the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation in 2018.

The High-Level Policy Dialogue will engage policymakers from Ministries and institutions in charge of trade, standards, conformity and accreditation, to present the ANTAM initiative and discuss national standards development and accreditation processes, as well as options and practices for the recognition of international standards and certification schemes. In consideration of the several international standards functioning in the region (although not necessarily related to the agricultural machinery sector), their representatives will also be invited to present experiences and reflections in terms of international standards adoption processes and mutual recognition.

The expected outcomes of the event are:

  • Gather knowledge and share experiences and best practices from member States on the role of international standards and mutual recognition systems for the facilitation of trade at large and with a special focus on trade of agricultural machinery.
  • Collect inputs for the development of the Terms of Reference for an Expert Group for the development of a mutual recognition system for the ANTAM initiative.

UN ESCAP-WAIPA Investment Promotion Agency Capacity Building Workshop on Promoting Sustainable FDI
Side Event Read more text

Background and objectives

The Policy Guidebook on Promoting FDI in the Digital Economy in Asia and the Pacific aims to support policymakers in their endeavor to do just that. It identifies three areas in which FDI can support host country digital transformation – namely, in building digital infrastructure; in supporting the digital transformation of traditional firms, in particular MSMEs and value-chain linked firms; and in supporting the development of indigenous digital businesses. A key priority of this guidebook is to help policymakers understand each of these three areas, how FDI can contribute to their further development, and what would entice foreign direct investors to invest in one or more of these areas in a desirous host country. By understanding the evolving context, trends and investor needs, policymakers in line ministries and IPAs can jointly develop coherent investment policies to target and promote FDI in the digital economy more effectively. Since levels of digital economy development vary across countries, the types of digital FDI they will seek to attract and promote, and the actions they need to attract it, will differ. For this reason, this guidebook also provides a set of policy recommendations specific to each area in which FDI can support digital economy development.  

This event will serve as the official launch of the guidebook. Several high-level speakers will welcome the audience and discuss the relevance of FDI for developing Asian-Pacific economies.

This Guidebook is the third knowledge product produced under the project Building the capacity of Asia-Pacific countries to utilize digital economy policies to accelerate progress on SDGs, funded by the government of China.

Accelerating Sustainable Development in Asia and the Pacific – Harnessing Networks to Develop Capacity to Achieve the SDGs

22 February 2023, 12:00 – 14:00 (UTC +7)

MR-D (Hybrid)

 

Objectives of the event

This event will engage attendees on the benefits of networks and collaboration to bridge some of the skills shortages currently faced by businesses in achieving the SDGs in the Asia Pacific region. Panelists will discuss the networks they are involved in across a range of the SDGs, including the UN Global Compact, formal as well as informal business networks, as well as discuss sustainability related topics such as financing and supply chains. The discussion will then focus on skills shortages which currently constrain the achievement of the SDGs, and how networks could be leveraged through collaboration and capacity building initiatives to enable progress on sustainability and decarbonization in MSMEs across the region. Through presentations, survey-based and open discussion, attendees at the event will benefit from a better understanding of existing networks that businesses can tap into to develop their sustainability programs, the role of in-house versus networked sustainability support, as well as identify some next steps to further develop sustainability related capacity and capabilities in the region. The results of this session will be turned into a white paper on the role of sustainability networks and organizational sustainability structure to build capacity in MSMEs in Asia Pacific.

This event will also inform attendees of some current developments in technologies and platforms that can contribute to the push for MSMEs to decarbonize their operations. Panelists will discuss the different kinds of tools companies, both large and small, are using to monitor the carbon intensity of their supply chains, and promising innovations in the region that are enabling the transition to a greener and more sustainable economy. Through presentations and open discussion, attendees at the event will come away with a better understanding of the practical tools that businesses are using to ensure decarbonization is measured and properly addressed.

Background and objectives

Multilateral, plurilateral, unilateral, as well as regional integration efforts in the Asia-Pacific have brought down tariffs, increased connectivity, helped achieve regulatory harmonization and promoted cooperation across ESCAP members, spurring both intra- and extra-regional trade. Yet, many non-tariff obstacles to trade persist, posing several challenges to exporters and importers in the region.

Business survey results show that NTMs impact exporters in the Asia-Pacific significantly, with 55% of all interviewed firms reporting them as burdensome. NTMs applied by regional trade partners comprise exactly half (50%) of all reported NTMs. Most NTMs perceived burdensome by exporters are foreign regulations (81%) rather than domestic regulations (19%). Following a global trend, NTM surveys in the Asia-Pacific countries show that technical NTMs such as conformity assessments and technical requirements applied by partner countries, and procedural obstacles (POs) at home, are among the main hurdles for traders in the region.

Procedural obstacles experienced by exporters in their home country are the primary reason why NTMs are found to be burdensome. The most common procedural obstacles include time delays, the need to make informal payments or high fees and charges. Other procedural obstacles faced in the domestic market include lack of accreditation, lack of appropriate testing facilities, and difficulties obtaining trade and NTM-related information.

The report highlights that market access begins at home. Trade regulations are deemed burdensome by exporters in the Asia-Pacific region primarily because of domestic procedural obstacles. Streamlining trade procedures at home is key to enabling exporters to access export markets. We also see that is that a higher implementation rate of trade facilitation measures, especially in the form of paperless trade, correlates with a fewer concerns vis-a-vis NTMs and higher export shares.

Background and objectives

 

ESCAP’s Trade Intelligence and Negotiation Adviser (TINA – https://tina.trade) is an online tool designed to assist trade policymakers and researchers in carrying out analytical tasks commonly conducted as part of trade agreement negotiations. Many of the intense tasks undertaken for trade agreement negotiations require specialized analytical and data management skills and are time-consuming when performed manually. TINA automates many of such tasks, enabling countries with limited resources to benefit from the same level of preparation as those afforded by larger economies. It was developed in close consultation with current and former members of trade negotiation teams throughout the Asia-Pacific region, using state of the art methodologies and technologies.

Since its inception in 2018, TINA has assisted several countries in the region. For example, the at the request of the Government of Bangladesh, TINA was used to help them with the Bangladesh-India trade agreement feasibility study; for the Government of India – studying the potential effects of India-EU/India-UK trade agreements; and for the Government of Mongolia – the potential of the Mongolia-Republic of Korea trade agreement.

Bangladesh, Cambodia and Vanuatu have also benefitted from using an additional key feature of TINA which evaluates the trade impacts of least developed country status graduation and resulting partial withdrawal of preferences by major trading partners such as the European Union, the United States, China and India. This feature is significant as it identifies sectors and markets most likely to be impacted, thus drawing policymakers’ attention to accord higher prioritization.

Event Background

The Pacific SIDS are among the smallest and most remote countries on earth with specific vulnerabilities for sustainable development. Climate change impacts along with the vulnerabilities stemming from the combination of physical characteristics, remoteness and poor infrastructure has a profound impact on development across all sectors in the subregion. For instance, the intersection of natural hazards like the volcanic eruption in Tonga, 2022 along with the COVID-19 pandemic led to prolonged health and economic disruptions in the region.

Noting these complex and systemic risks, the 2050 Strategy for the Blue Pacific Continent, adopted in July 2022, outlines key thematic areas for urgent, immediate and appropriate action. The Strategy aims to combat the above-mentioned threats to secure the wellbeing of people. Using the fundamentals of the 2050 Pacific Strategy, ESCAP’s report “Asia Pacific Disaster Report 2022 for ESCAP Subregions - Pathways for Adaptation and Resilience in the Pacific” is one of the first to provide analytics, solutions, and key recommendations to operationalize these strategic pathways in the Climate Change and Disasters and related areas of Technology.

Enabling sustainable recovery with greater access to information, access to justice and public participation in environmental decision-making

Submitted by MCASTILLOG on Mon, 22/03/2021 - 00:00
Event Background

Watch the event's recording via Youtube:

https://youtu.be/c6GMbBnZXGE

 

Within the 2030 Agenda, States affirm the need to build peaceful, just, and inclusive societies that provide equal access to justice and that are based on respect for human rights (including the right to development), on effective rule of law and good governance at all levels, and on transparent, effective, and accountable institutions. Effective laws and policies and strong institutions provide the necessary foundation for environmental protection and enforcement in order to create resilience to environmental crises, stop environmental crime and reduce future pandemic risks. These aims, encapsulated in Sustainable Development Goal 16, its targets, and its indicators, provide an enabling environment for inclusive, sustainable and green recovery from the COVID- 19 pandemic. A number of targets for Goal 16 outline procedural rights and guarantees, on what can be termed “access rights” – access to information, public participation in decision-making, access to justice.

The expected outcome of this event is an expanded regional dialogue with key stakeholders on access rights in the Asia and the Pacific.

The effective establishment of dialogue around these issues could seed the foundations of a wider framework in Asia and the Pacific, such as the “Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-Making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters” (Aarhus Convention) in Europe, and the “Regional Agreement on Access to Information, Public Participation and Justice in Environmental Matters in Latin America and the Caribbean” (Escazu Agreement). Such regional agreements reinforce the foundation for environmental rule of law and uphold access rights in environmental decision making.
