ASEAN Sustainable Development Summit 2019

Deepening Partnership For The Sustainable Development Goals

The ASEAN Sustainable Development Summit 2019 (ASD2019) is an evolution of the ASEAN Ministers Workshop inaugurated in 2017 with the participation of ministers and senior public officials from almost all ASEAN countries. The 2019 series is jointly organised by the Jeffrey Sachs Center on Sustainable Development (JSC) and the Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute (ASLI).
The Jeffrey Cheah Foundation, which owns ASLI and the Jeffrey Sachs Center on Sustainable Development (JSC), is committed to ensuring a better tomorrow for Malaysians as well as the people of ASEAN, which includes advancing the sustainability agenda in the region. Our embrace of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals is a crucial component of this mission. This Summit will prompt the much-needed impetus for heightened cooperation among ASEAN member-states in advancing the sustainable development goals in the region.

The focus of ASD 2019 will be on the pertinent themes of: urbanisation; health; education; inequality and inclusive growth; technological transformations; climate change; and responsible corporate action. These themes are interlinked with the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and are pressing concerns that must be collectively resolved to ensure a truly sustainable ASEAN region moving forward - economically, socially and environmentally. 
The Summit provides a platform and practical framework for ASEAN policymakers, industry practitioners and experts to address shared challenges to sustainable development. This one-day event covers a series of ministerial and thematic panels to discuss imperatives and feasible and effective implementation strategies and solutions for ASEAN.
