The article focuses on the challenges of climatic change in the Asia-Pacific Region. In a study, A Change in Climate was conducted by the Economnist Intelligence Unit and revealed that more businesses in the region were monitoring the energy use abd enactment of a range of carbon-reduction strategies. The survey indicated regional differences in approach to the global issue.
