Abstract: The governments of Asian countries have signed on to the COP21 agreement, binding their states to the fulfilment of the global climate change policy of the United Nations. Thus, they are now confronted with the task of implementing the chief objectives of the COP21: halting and reducing CO 2 emissions stopping deforestation and desertification, and promoting long-term decarbonisation of their economies in a wide sense. The policy process envisaged is a decentralised one, with each government defining its ends and means. The COP21 puts enormous responsibility on Asian countries, as this region has the most CO 2 emissions of all regions in the world and its energy consumption is predicted to continue to grow at a fast rate. Yet, policy implementation is difficult to conduct in a successful manner.
