Associate Director Sharon Seah gave a presentation on the role of the academic sector in climate governance at the International Workshop on Partnership to Strengthen Transparency and Co-Innovation (PaSTI), which was held on 7–8 November in Manila, Philippines. The academic sector possesses institutional capacities, intellectual resources and ability to conduct cutting-edge research. These are strengths that governments and other private sectors can leverage on to increase climate transparency and promote greater climate ambition.

The workshop was organised by the Ministry of Environment, Japan in collaboration with the World Resources Institute. The workshop’s aims are to share knowledge and build networks among ASEAN participants, international institutions, experts and the private sector to develop critical tools for Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) development in the region.
