ESCAP releases Digital and Sustainable Regional Integration Index

The Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) has released the ‘Digital and Sustainable Regional Integration Index and Indicator Framework’ (DigiSII1.0) that seeks to develop a global indicator framework for digital and sustainable regional integration. The study provides an overview of seven dimensions including trade and investment, free movement of people, infrastructure, regulatory cooperation and digital economy integration that facilitate the evaluation of regional integration progress in the Asia-Pacific. It also addresses the drivers of regional integration and tackles issues such as conventional versus sustainable regional integration. 

The report was released as part of the UN Development Account Project on ‘Measuring, monitoring and improving performance in regional integration within ECA, ESCWA and ESCAP regions’.
