ASEAN countries do recognise the various challenges they face due not only to climate change but also energy shortage, and how solutions for one of these challenges may exacerbate targets for the other. Several policies and initiatives are in place to address ASEAN’s climate change concerns and improve its energy security. These include the ARF debates on the climate change front and the building of energy infrastructure and the integration of its energy markets for energy security. ASEAN is actively engaged in working out possible solutions for its myriad problems—the recent ARF debates, in Cambodia and Brussels, where ASEAN countries agreed to extend their energy security efforts for combating climate change, are proof of this resolve.

At present, energy (in)security is more than simply energy supply and demand, and policymakers need to address a broader range of interrelated issues associated with energy use, including global warming. The interdependent nature of the global energy market, linking consumers and producers tightly together, necessitates a collective effort by all nations, especially where promoting energy efficiency and mitigation of climate change is concerned. Although progress in this respect has not been significant, examples can be found of the growing recognition that good market governance is key for ensuring energy security and of efforts towards finding a balance between market principles and regulation by the government.

It was emphasised that a regional approach was needed to further explore responses to the security risks associated with climate change. The Brussels seminar concluded and recommended approaches and actions for addressing climate change. First, it pointed out that, in addition to efforts at the national level, regional political dialogue to promote understanding of the complex interlinkages between climate change and security implications needed to continue. Second, due to resource pressures and the complex and transboundary impacts of climate change on agricultural productivity, regional countries needed to pay attention especially to strengthening national and regional capacities on disaster risk reduction and management via development assistance and technology transfer, and so on.
