The much-awaited Southeast Asia Climate Outlook 2022 Survey Report garnered nearly 1,400 respondents from across various cities, professions, and walks of life in Southeast Asia. The survey asked around 38 questions on the topics of climate change issues, policies, energy transition and food security, and international climate cooperation – ultimately in the hope of providing a perspective into the sentiments of ASEAN citizens on climate change. In this launch webinar, the survey results were shared by Climate Change in Southeast Asia Programme (CCSEAP) Coordinator Ms. Sharon Seah, and a discussion was set in motion by experts Dr. Helena Varkkey from the University of Malaya, Dr. Indra Overland from the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs and Ms. Johanna Son from Reporting ASEAN.
Since assuming her current duties, Dr Noeleen Heyzer has engaged stakeholders in Myanmar to understand the challenges and aspirations for a home-grown solution to the country’s crisis and for a just, inclusive and peaceful future. Though the UN General Assembly initially established the Special Envoy’s mandate to address the Rohingya crisis, the challenges facing the Myanmar people have grown in both scope and urgency. Dr Heyzer is now working to facilitate greater political support, internationally and regionally, to address the multiple needs and vulnerabilities in Myanmar that have worsened since the coup in 2021.
