Guidelines for Developing Indicators to Track Action on Energy-Related Climate Change Mitigation Policies
Today, the energy sector has become a particularly important factor in addressing climate change. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to develop a system of policies and actions to reduce emissions from the energy sector. Recognizing the importance of climate change action-monitoring indicators in relation to energy mitigation policy, this guide has been developed to provide an overview of energy-related climate change issues in Asian countries.
This report details the importance of statistics in policy making and analysis, as well as best practices in setting strong goals, especially in terms of renewable energy, energy intensity and carbon footprint. The report concludes that collaboration among policymakers, statisticians, energy planners and other energy-related analysts within government ministries is essential.
