Jointly established by the Asian Development Bank, Asian Institute of Technology, the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), the new “knowledge hub” will function as a think tank on technology, good practices, policy strategy and management.
Located at the Institute, it will also focus on issues related to the “3R” – shorthand for reduce, reuse and recycle – which UNESCAP said in a press release “promotes sustainable production and consumption of limited natural resources, and improved economic and environmental efficiency.”
Towards this end, the initiative will facilitate research, promote information sharing, and liaise with academic, scientific and technical institutions, the private sector, and civil society. The hub will also produce new information products on 3R, including periodicals, website, newsletters, workshops and training courses, UNESCAP said.
