Activities for the ASEAN region

PaSTI was established as one of the pillar activities on climate change in the “ASEAN-Japan Environmental Cooperation Initiative” presented by the prime minister of Japan in 2017. PaSTI cooperates with ASEAN Working Group on Climate Change and contributes to improving transparency of non-state actors in the ASEAN region.

PaSTI-Closing Webinar was held to conclude Phase 1 activities.

As originally proposed for Phase 1 of the PaSTI-JAIF Project, a technical training in Japan was planned for February 2020. However, the COVID-19 pandemic made it difficult to travel internationally, and as a result, the technical training has been replaced by the organization of this webinar.

To summarise the Phase 1, the implementation agency prepared three video presentations explaining outcomes of Phase 1. By sending this information prior to the webinar, a very fruitful discussion was able to be conducted among the PaSTI-JAIF focal points from each ASEAN Member State during this virtual event.

In this webinar, Roadmap for Designing Facility Level GHG M&R Guideline for ASEAN Region was adopted as the output of Phase 1 activities.

You can recap the webinar on PaSTI Official Channel.

In August 2018, the 29th ASEAN Senior Officials Meeting on the Environment endorsed a proposed PaSTI project for ASEAN which facilitates the entire ASEAN region in enhancing Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) system. Accordingly, a concept of the “Development and implementation of facility / company level MRV systems for GHG emissions in AMS” project was suggested with mobilizing Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF).

This project objects to support the development and use of critical tools including guidelines and methodologies for compatible MRV system and enhances cooperative climate actions across the ASEAN member states.
