The Statistical Yearbook for Asia and the Pacific 2015 presents data for the 58 ESCAP member countries, as well as world, regional, sub-regional and economic aggregates for comparison. For the first time the Yearbook is aligned with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It offers current trends and emerging topics in the Asia-Pacific region, grouped around the themes of people, the environment, the economy and connectivity. It provides the international and regional community with key indicators, objective analyses of the current trends and emerging issues, along with data and charts. In order to maximize the comparability, the data is sourced exclusively from international agencies that adhere to the official global statistical standards.

Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts

While the deadline for achieving all 17 Sustainable Development Goals is 15 years into the future, Goal 13 calls for “urgent” action to combat climate change and its adverse impacts. Owing to the highly destructive nature of extreme weather events in Asia and the Pacific, recognition of the need for such rapid action is welcomed by the Governments of countries and areas in the region.
