      India can help Vietnam achieve the goal of rapid and sustainable development. Noting that APEC can provide stimulus to change this trajectory, she stated that the vitality and dynamism of the region could be harnessed to achieve the mutually supportive objectives of trade liberalization and environmental protection. He stated that only through marshaling the capital, expertise and ingenuity of the business sector, in partnership with governments and the voluntary sector, can the pressing environmental challenges of APEC cities be met. Power from this site will feed the provincial capital, Popondetta and the tourist town of Kokoda.

      Moreover, lodging environmental concerns within an organization pre-eminently concerned with trade and investment holds promise for environmental governance of the global economy. Unless specific measures are taken, these costs are not reflected in market prices but are borne socially, today or in the future. However, APEC is highly dispersed geographically. The sixth Congress inwhich initiated the renewal process in Vietnam, put forward the view: "Stability and development are linked together in the process of moving forward; stability is for development and only through development can stability be achieved.

      This estimate is based on UN data, which simply sums figures submitted by governments. In their other work, the Working Groups are pursuing agendas which may have far greater and potentially negative impacts on the environment, such as liberalization of resource-intensive trade and harmonization of vehicle emissions standards. On the other hand, APEC could help to catalyze or support cooperation on sub-regional transboundary issues, such as acid rain in Northeast Asia or fisheries in Southeast Asia. In addition, solar power, LNG and biomass energy production projects are being developed.

Whether at APEC or some other regional forum, popular and commercial pressures suggest that environmental cooperation will be on the Asia Pacific agenda over the next decade.

The chair of APEC rotates every year, the Secretariat is purposefully kept very small, the Sustainable electricity supply options for the APEC region book Working Groups and three Committees do most of the work, and coordinating mechanisms, if they exist, are built into existing Committees.

Improve capacity building and develop emergency response mechanisms to support secure and stable oil and gas supplies and ensure effective response to supply disruptions.

Sidek Bin Saniff, Minister of the Environment SINGAPOREnoted that economies that are in an advanced stage of development could guide others in building environmental policies, particularly regarding information-sharing, capacity-building and transfer of expertise.

However, the requirement to move ahead only in ways and on issues in which there is unanimity-or at least, in which there is no strong objection-derails even the discussion of controversial issues and makes progress slow.

One of the primary fault lines stems from different models of development. In this respect, we commit to working with others to double by the year the current number of APEC communities with Local Agenda Sustainable electricity supply options for the APEC region book plans.

Unless specific measures are taken, these costs are not reflected in market prices but are borne socially, today or in the future. It also stresses that: mono-cropping represents a further threat to biodiversity through the reduction in agricultural biodiversity; and although assessments have taken place on potential land-use change and biodiversity issues, the frameworks for sustained data collection and analysis have yet to be developed.

Instead, APEC aims to be primarily task-oriented and to promote private sector initiatives. We recommend that our Leaders send a strong message of support to ensure the success of the Conference of Parties and achieve the objective of the Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Moreover, initiatives can easily be undertaken to fill issue vacuums. For a discussion of the ethical and historical dimensions of allocating responsibility for greenhouse gas emissions, see P.

We direct our officials to work with other APEC fora to develop appropriate means of furthering such cooperation. Starting from a small, and backward economy heavily devastated after more than 30 years of war, lagging far behind the region and the world and with extremely difficult living conditions, rapid development to improve people's lives, and strengthen the country was an urgent requirement for Vietnam.

Inabout 40 percent of total East Asian trade was to other East Asian countries; for North America, the figure was roughly 37 percent. The need to develop institutional mechanisms, at least for better coordination, was discussed and debated. Taiwan, for example, faces enormous problems of water and soil pollution, and is eager to embrace market-oriented approaches to clean-up like ISO 14, In face of rapid changes it is necessary to step up theoretical study, attach importance to review practices, especially new models and good experiences; regularly grasp and predict new developments; harmonize relationship between rapid and sustainable development, between immediate and long-term interests, between economic and social development; link economic growth with the realisation of social progress and equity, environment protection, consolidation of national defense and security.

Endorse an aspirational goal to double the share of renewable energy in APEC's overall energy mix by and intensify cooperation to achieve it.

Rationalizing and Phasing Out Inefficient Fossil Fuel Subsidies Annually sinceAPEC Leaders have committed to rationalize and phase out inefficient fossil-fuel subsidies that encourage wasteful consumption and constrain sustainable economic growth.

The EWG is working to enhance energy security in a number of ways to help economies weather short-term energy supply disruptions and secure access to reliable, affordable and cleaner energy supply.
