A Good Reference to Achieving SustainableGrowth in ASEAN It’s a tool to identify opportunities for sustainable growth of ASEAN. ASEAN has an estimated population of 600 million. By 2026, it is estimated that more than half the population of this growing region will be living in urban centers which would create issues around food, water, energy, nutrition and poverty. Efforts are in place both globally and in ASEAN region to help enhance food security issues.
