Environmental Politics in Southeast Asia: Recent Trends and Likely Future Directions

Organized by Yusof Ishak Institute

26 Apr 2022 (Online)

Attend for FREE

Overview

How important are climate change and environmental issues in the politics of Southeast Asia? As the level of community concern around the impact of climate change grows, backed up by research indicating potentially major economic, social and environmental disruptions, how are existing political parties responding to this challenge? And why, despite the number of elected environmental MPs continuing to grow elsewhere around the world, are there so few (if any) green parliamentarians in legislatures in Southeast Asia?

Join us to discuss some of these issues, in a webinar that will cover topics such as:

  • How are current (established) political parties in the region dealing with environmental issues? And with climate change?
  • How many green MPs are there in the region?
  • Will increasing levels of climate change lead to electoral change?
  • What are the barriers and triggers to the rise of more green/environment-focused MPs?
  • If there are more green MPs, what impact is this likely to have on parliaments and governments in the region?

This is a presentation for everyone with an interest in democratic trends, electoral politics, the environment and civil society.
