About the Webinar
The Southeast Asia Climate Outlook 2021 Survey Report is the second survey of climate change attitudes and perspectives of the Southeast Asian Region. Conducted annually by the Climate Change in Southeast Asia Programme at the ISEAS Yusof-Ishak Institute, this survey was designed to analyse the attitudes and concerns of Southeast Asian citizens towards climate change, governmental policies and actions and the role of different stakeholders in climate action. The survey also drew views on renewable energy transition, food security, climate adaptation and mitigation in cities, green recovery, as well as regional and international cooperation. This webinar will launch the Report and introduce key findings, accompanied by the insights of three expert discussants versed in regional climate and environment policy.
