Emerging issues for sustainable development in the Asia-Pacific by Professor Stewart Lockie (James Cook University Australia)

On 1 January 2016, the United Nations commenced implementation of its 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, committing member states to the universal abolition of hunger, poverty, violence and exploitation. Not surprisingly, concerns have been raised by numerous stakeholders about the adequacy of goals embedded in the Agenda to address known sustainability challenges. The focus of this presentation, however, is on unknown and/or embryonic sustainability issues. Specifically, how in the Asia-Pacific region do we identify and evaluate issues not currently on the sustainable development agenda? And what is the role of the science-policy interface in this process?
