The new book provides readers with practical knowledge and information about the vast number of EU SWITCH-Asia funded projects that have been implemented in Asia for over a decade, as well as insights about their impact in the region.
127 ongoing and completed projects are clustered under key overarching thematic issues in line with EU Green Deal priorities: Agri-food, Textiles and Leather, Sustainable Housing and Building, Waste Management, Plastics, Responsible Tourism, Transport and Logistics, and Electronics, among others.
Since its inception, the SWITCH-Asia programme has been following trends common to Europe and Asia, two regions that are increasingly interconnected through global value chains. Important lessons learned and experiences from Asia may inform and support the implementation of the external dimension of the European Green Deal, while mainstreaming SCP in support to a green and circular economy, environmental justice and equality.
