Sixth ASEAN Chief Justices' Roundtable on Environment: Forging the Sustainable Future of the ASEAN Region - The Proceedings
The ASEAN judiciaries reviewed their agreements on how they see, and aimed to fulfill, their role in protecting the environment, advancing environmental justice, and upholding the rule of law at the Sixth Roundtable held in the Philippines. The Sixth Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Chief Justices' Roundtable on Environment, cohosted by the Asian Development Bank, served as a forum to strengthen ASEAN judges' knowledge and expertise in environmental and climate change law. The Sixth Roundtable, held in the Philippines on 10-13 November 2016, enabled ASEAN chief justices and their nominees to review prior roundtable agreements and report progress in implementing the Jakarta Common Vision, the Hanoi Action Plan, and the Angkor Statement. The annual roundtable conferences aimed to support ASEAN judges in strengthening their capacity to interpret, apply, and enforce environmental treaties, laws, and regulations based on the rule of law, thereby enabling effective environmental adjudication.

Asian Development Outlook 2017 Update: Sustaining Development Through Public-Private Partnership
Developing Asia is forecast to expand by 5.9% in 2017 and 5.8% in 2018, a slight upgrade from projections in Asian Development Outlook 2017. Growth prospects for developing Asia are looking up, bolstered by a revival in world trade and strong momentum in the People's Republic of China. Rebounds in international food and fuel prices are gentler than expected, helping to contain consumer price pressures. Inflation is likely to dip to 2.4% in 2017, or 0.1 percentage points off the 2016 rate, and pick up to 2.9% in 2018. Risks to the outlook have become more balanced, as the advanced economies have so far avoided sharp, unexpected changes to their macroeconomic policies. Further, the fuel price rise is providing fiscal relief to oil exporters but is measured enough not to destabilize oil importers.

Same Energy, More Power: Accelerating Energy Efficiency in Asia
Asia's remarkable economic expansion over the last 2 decades has lifted millions out of poverty. With continued growth, by the middle of this century, an additional 3 billion Asians could enjoy living standards similar to those in Europe today. New energy resources must be developed to include low-carbon renewable options, and greater emphasis must be given to energy efficiency, the lowest-cost energy resource of all. This report examines prospects to accelerate lending and investment for energy efficiency in Asia, in light of trends that are driving energy use and policy and regulatory change in developing countries.

Review of 2011 Financial Sector Operational Plan
The cross-cutting impact of finance on different sectors and economic activities amplifies opportunities for expanding financial inclusion and poverty reduction, which is why the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) 2011 Financial Sector Operational Plan (FSOP) was designed to address challenges ahead. ADB's finance sector operations contributed 11% of total lending portfolio over 2011-2015, about 15% of that in 2015 alone. This review examines the implementation of the 2011 FSOP and looks at the critical role of the finance sector in development in Asia and the Pacific. While this publication affirms that the FSOP remains valid and relevant, it also makes recommendations up to 2020 and provides a platform to launch the FSOP beyond 2020 to ensure its relevance with ADB's road to 2030.

Unlocking Indonesia's Geothermal Potential
Geothermal energy represents one of the key options for Indonesia to achieve a comprehensive approach to national energy development. The rapid increase in fossil-fuel based energy consumption, which is subject to volatility in the world oil market, is the main challenge facing the country's energy supply. This study documents key issues that have constrained the development of geothermal power in Indonesia, including tariffs, tendering processes, financial considerations, permitting, and interagency coordination. It also makes recommendations to unlock the potential of the sector, including a new tariff regime, improvements to the tendering process, renegotiation of power purchase agreements, and innovative modes of financing.

Asian Development Outlook 2016 Update: Meeting the Low-Carbon Growth Challenge
Growth has held up in developing Asia despite a difficult external environment. The region is expected to grow steadily at 5.7% in 2016 and 2017, the forecasts in this Update unchanged from Asian Development Outlook 2016. While global commodity prices have begun to rebound, inflation remains largely subdued. Consumer prices will likely rise by 2.6% in 2016 and 2.9% in 2017. Continued slow recovery in the United States, the euro area, and Japan presents a clear downside risk to the outlook. Uncertainty about the path of monetary policy in these economies, and the implications this has for capital flows, complicates macroeconomic management in developing Asia. Policy makers globally need to resist moves toward protectionism that would only undermine the recovery. By transitioning to low-carbon growth, developing Asia is poised to reap outsized rewards as an essential player in the global effort to contain climate change.

ADB Through the Decades: ADB's Second Decade (1977-1986)
The 5-volume publication, ADB through the Decades, provides a historical account of how ADB has evolved to respond to the dynamic changes across the Asia and Pacific region over the past 5 decades. This second volume from the series shows how ADB responded to the growing diversity among its developing member countries as both membership and operations widened during 1977-1986. The Asia and Pacific region continued to grow despite a difficult external global environment, demonstrating resilience after a second oil shock and the international debt crisis that followed. This volume shows how ADB responded to the growing diversity among its developing member countries. During this decade, ADB sought to position itself as a regional resource center with a broader role of providing not only financial assistance but becoming a center of new thinking on development issues in the region. ADB moved closer to the ground by opening its first Resident Office in Bangladesh in 1982. New lending products were introduced, including program and sector lending, direct lending to private sector without government guarantees, and equity investment. As the decade closed, two key historical landmarks occurred: ADB made its first loan to India, and the People's Republic of China became a member.

ADB Through the Decades: ADB's Fifth Decade (2007-2016)
The 5-volume publication, ADB through the Decades, provides a historical account of how ADB has evolved to respond to the dynamic changes across the Asia and Pacific region over the past 5 decades. This fifth volume from the series presents ADB's response to intensified development challenges, a more ambitious global development agenda, and the emergence of new sources of development finance. Asia proved resilient to the effects of the 2008-2009 global financial crisis, but sustaining rapid growth became more difficult afterward. Development challenges intensified, the global development agenda became more ambitious, and new sources of development finance emerged. This volume shows how ADB continued to reform to meet these challenges. A new long-term strategic framework, Strategy 2020, was launched in 2008, to respond to the changing needs of the region. A midterm review of Strategy 2020 was released in 2014, further refining and adjusting priorities in order for ADB to remain relevant and responsive to borrowers. Various organizational changes were introduced, internal business processes were improved, and several new instruments were adopted as part of ADB's efforts to become stronger, better, faster. ADB's lending capacity expanded significantly, with the fifth general capital increase in 2009, followed by the unique and groundbreaking combination of the Asian Development Fund portfolio with the ordinary capital resources balance sheet approved in 2015.

Relying on oil and gas alone, however, will not produce the long-run level of growth needed to meet this potential. Reforms geared to improve the business climate, enhance competitiveness, and increase private sector participation are essential. This book examines reforms to accelerate economic diversification in the country. This involves not only modernizing and using public resources in agriculture more efficiently to increase productivity, but also transitioning of manufacturing toward high-potential exports to help the country's industrial development and create employment opportunities. Upgrading innovation of oilfield services and improving transport and logistics are important to increase participation in the global value chains.

The Pacific is among those parts of the world most vulnerable to weather-related disasters. To illustrate, 5 of the top 15 countries with the highest risk, and 10 of the top 30 facing the largest potential economic losses from disasters, are in the subregion. With climate change bringing additional risks from global sea level rise-and potentially heightening vulnerability to more intense, frequent, and prolonged extreme weather events-Pacific economies are stepping up adaptation efforts to brace for future adverse impacts. These include climate-proofing vital infrastructure assets, strengthening disaster risk management, and expanding social safety nets to build resilience to disasters. Further, a number of Pacific economies are promoting green urban development to move toward more sustainable green cities. Careful monitoring and planning will also be required to manage important income flows, including fishing license fees and tourism-related revenues, amid climate-related volatilities and to maintain adequate fiscal buffers for disaster response.

While Asia has the world's fastest-growing economy, 29 of 48 countries assessed by the Asian Water Development Outlook 2016 are water-insecure, posing a threat to the region's continued growth. As economies develop, increasing demands will be placed on water for food and water for energy. In the irrigation subsector, energy is required for ground and surface water pumping, as well as for fueling on-farm irrigation technology and other farm machinery. Water and energy are intrinsically linked, yet there is limited information on quantifying energy use in irrigation systems. This publication summarizes the results of a pilot study to quantify water and energy use in high-exfficiency irrigation systems within drought-aZffected provinces in Viet Nam.
