Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific 2019: Ambitions beyond Growth
The Asia-Pacific region needs an estimated $1.5 trillion per year to end poverty and hunger, provide basic health care, quality education, enabling infrastructure, and clean energy for all, and for climate action and living in harmony with nature.
