Growth led by low-carbon goods and services (LCGS) is an imperative for the countries of Asia and the Pacific, and particularly for emerging Asian economies, which are heavily dependent on imported energy and resources. The objectives of this study are to measure the potential of major emerging Asian economies for exports in LCGS under the 'grand coalition,' partial coalition, and stand-alone scenarios; measure the impact of existing 'behind the border' constraints on potential exports in emerging Asian economies; identify the potential, options, and challenges with respect to a grand coalition scenario; and find ways to improve the contribution of public–private partnerships to LCGS.
Keywords: low carbon goods services, emerging asian economies, energy, public private partnerships, trade environment, green growth
