Connecting SWITCH-Asia activities and sharing our insights

The building and housing sector is among the most resource-intensive and economically important sectors globally. Drastically reducing the emissions of buildings and construction is decisive for achieving the below 1.5 degrees Celsius ambition set forth in the Paris Agreement. 

The EU and its SWITCH-Asia programme recognize the critical importance of this sector in promoting sustainability through SCP, making the construction, housing, and buildings cluster a major pillar of their activities. This is achieved through technical assistance provided by the Policy Support Component (PSC) at the government level and through the Grants Programme in support of the region’s SCP-relevant entrepreneurs and SMEs.
