The Regional Resource Centre for Asia and the
Pacific (RRC.AP) is an Institute-wide centre of the Asian Institute of
Technology (AIT) that aims to bridge the gap between the scientific
understanding of sustainable development processes and sound policies at
national and regional levels.
Our goal is to provide resources for informed decision making
and policy setting towards sustainable development, acting as a science-policy
interface by regional networking, processing and assessing information and
knowledge for governments, local communities and other stakeholders in the
RRC.AP also serves as a Secretariat for several networks and
Multilateral Environmental Agreements. In over 25 years of activity we have
provided support for the development and implementation of national strategies
and policies in several fields of sustainable development, strengthening the
capacity of government environment agencies as well as non-state actors and
stakeholders to address sustainable development through the environment window.
