The present study examines the impact of urbanization and energy intensity of South Asian economies. Data set from WDI and World Bank has been utilized for the time period of 1980-2017. The model for energy intensity and urbanization is regressed by using co-integration and augmented Dicky fuller techniques. The estimation results depicts positive relationship of energy intensity and urbanization. Further, urbanization has positive relationship with carbon emission. To minimize carbon emission government should switch power plants from fossil fuels to environmental friendly sources.There should be institutional setup to manage urbanization and its associated outcomes like energy efficient building structure, people awareness of climate change etc. Supervisor:- Dr. Attiya Yasmin
