BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, July 26 (Borneo Bulletin/ANN): The Asean region is widely considered as one of the world’s most vulnerable region to the impacts of climate change.

As such, Brunei together with counterparts across the Asean region, place great importance on nature-based solutions for reducing emissions, addressing climate change and strengthening resilience, as the region holds significant value of the world’s carbon stock.

Brunei and Asean’s commitment in addressing climate change was highlighted by Minister of Development Dato Seri Setia Ir Awang Haji Suhaimi Haji Gafar at the G20 Energy and Climate Joint Ministerial Meeting that took place on July 23, via video conference.

In advancing nature-based solutions, Asean is set to launch an Asean Green Initiative and a Status Report on Investing in Sustainable Natural Capital in Asean later this year, he added.

Accelerating climate mitigation and adaptation actions while promoting sustainable development have always been at the heart of Asean’s agenda and priorities, driven by the Asean Vision and the Asean Socio-Cultural Community Blueprint 2025.

This is also in line with the three broad pillars of action of this year’s G20, ‘People, Place, Prosperity’ complements Brunei Darussalam’s Asean Chairmanship’s theme ‘We Care, We Prepare, We Prosper’. - Borneo Bulletin/ANN
