This activity report is based on the Asia and the Pacific megatrends, such as urbanization, economic and trade integration and rising incomes and changing consumption patterns, which are transforming its societies and economies while multiplying the environmental challenges. These megatrends are already shaping the future patterns of resource use and defining who benefits the most and who loses. Aligning these trends with sustainable development requires political will and action.
