The development and diffusion of environmentally sound technologies (ESTs) are crucial to the implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. International trade is an important channel and enabler of the diffusion of ESTs, especially in developing countries. Given the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region’s emphasis on promoting the diffusion of renewable energy technologies and implementing the sustainable development agenda, the potential for expanded trade in ESTs is especially large. This report is part of a project undertaken by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the UNEP-DTU Partnership,with the goal of assisting developing countries in assessing and understanding the opportunities, benefits and challenges of liberalizing the trade in ESTs.
