In 2010, ASEF commissioned research to investigate good practices connecting the arts to initiatives tackling environmental sustainability issues in a number of Asian countries. Titled Linking the Arts to Environment and Sustainable Development Issues,Â the research project aimed to carefully document case studies that can not only provide inspiration for networking and collaboration between Asia and Europe in this area but also aid policy making and planning.
The researchers examined initiatives by the cultural sector as well as by civil society organisations working on environmental issues in nine Asian countries: India, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Mongolia.
