Energy Equity and Environmental Security

This report stems from discussions under the Ethics and Climate Change in Asia and the Pacific (ECCAP) project and provides an overview of the ethical, economic and legal issues associated with energy equity and environmental security. Access to an effective, reliable and safe set of energy resources is one of the most important development goals in the Asia-Pacific region. The report considers options that could provide impetus for energy security against a backdrop of poverty and a lack of resources. It also highlights the challenge of balancing access of all people to the level of energy needed versus making sure that energy consumption behaviour does not jeopardise the wellbeing and security of others.
