Global Outlook on SCP Policies: Taking Action Together [Preview of main report]
United Nations Environment Programme

This report presents the first findings of the Global Outlook on SCP Policies, commissioned from UNEP by the European Commission, which provides a nonexhaustive review of government policies and business and civil society initiatives to move towards sustainable consumption and production (SCP). Broad in scope and worldwide in coverage, it includes examples ranging from regional strategies and frameworks to specific policies in a single country. SCP touches upon all aspects of economic activity, and some of the policies that add most value are not necessarily branded with the language of ‘SCP’ but rather under resource efficiency or sectoral initiatives. These efforts have also been captured by the Global Outlook on SCP Policies.

Asian Development Outlook 2011 Update: Preparing for Demographic Transition
Asian Development Bank

The annual Asian Development Outlook, generally launched in April, presents an analysis of developing Asia's recent economic performance plus its prospects for the next two years. This Update shows whether these forecasts were met, explaining divergence between forecasts and the actual outturn, and firms the forecasts for the next 18 months or so. Asian Development Outlook 2011 Update: A Look at Aging Asia The Update expects developing Asia to sustain its robust growth over the next 2 years, despite the tepid outlook for the United States, the eurozone, and Japan. The region will be buttressed by healthy domestic demand and buoyant intraregional trade. Managing inflation has to be a key focus for policy makers, to allow for inclusive growth. Such growth includes the elderly, who are all too often left behind as Asia's traditional family networks weaken. As the elderly will form an ever-larger share of the regions population over the next few decades, states will have to ensure their economic security—and meet the wider economic implications for society.

The immediate problem is tackling rising consumer price pressures. Inflation's insidious effects call for preemptive action to contain it before it begins to accelerate. The poor are the most vulnerable, particularly from rising food prices.

Asian Development Outlook 2010: Macroeconomic Management Beyond the Crisis
Asian Development Bank

The annual Asian Development Outlook provides a comprehensive analysis of economic performance for the past year and offers forecasts for the next 2 years for the 45 Asian economies that make up developing Asia. This edition sees developing Asia emerging from the recent crisis and posting a strong recovery in the next 2 years, as a moderate global recovery supports a modest revival in global trade. Investment is expected to remain strong and private consumption is anticipated to improve. Inflation will pick up, but at manageable levels. Beyond the crisis, developing Asia faces the challenge of adjusting its monetary, exchange rate, and fiscal policies to foster macroeconomic stability and sustained growth within the broader direction of a return to prudence and discipline.
