Challenges and opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region

Join us for a special event that explores the challenges and opportunities for sustainable infrastructure development in the world’s tropical zone. Hosted by State of the Tropics alliance partners James Cook University and Mahidol University, the forum will bring together business leaders, academics, policy makers and other stakeholders from throughout the Asia-Pacific to explore the critical role the region has to play as the world redefines the global development agenda.

State of the Tropics is a global alliance of leading research institutions providing in-depth coverage and analysis of key social, economic and environmental issues affecting the tropical world. With the support of the Australian Government’s Australia-ASEAN Council this forum is part of a series of events exploring key development issues in the Asia-Pacific region and its significance to the tropics and beyond.
