This brief discusses the role of systemic leadership in addressing climate change-related land use challenges in Southeast Asia. In particular, it will reflect on the role of leadership in promoting transformational change towards a low-carbon, resilient and food secure economy and society, both globally and regionally. It will also discuss how the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) can embed this approach in its policy framework.
It builds upon insights from the ASEAN Climate Leadership Programme (ACLP), which was designed as a contribution to the work of the ASEAN Climate Resilience Network (ASEAN-CRN). The brief outlines the ACLP’s underlying theory, discuss experiences of the programme and provide inspiration as to how systemic leadership for climate-smart land use can be further promoted in the context of ASEAN.
