This report discusses the challenges in improving energy security and reducing carbon intensity in Asia and the Pacific. The region needs expanding supplies of energy to improve the lives of the poor through continued rapid economic growth, while simultaneously ensuring that this development is locally and globally environmentally sustainable. Given the current patterns of consumption, developing countries in the region are projected to account for 39% of global demand for primary energy by 2030.
