Joint U.S.-China Workshop
Pathways Toward Low Carbon Cities:
Quantifying Baselines and Interventions
Hong Kong Polytechnic University
December 13-14, 2010
More than 1,000 cities worldwide are presently engaged in climate action planning at the local level. Now with the U.S. and China being the top-two GHG emitters worldwide, it is more important than ever to set an example with successful low-carbon programs.
This workshop will seek to solve the transboundary challenges in quantifying GHG emissions both long and short lived, through case study examples. It will also attempt to quantify the design and rapid diffusion of low-carbon technology-policies of the future across global cities. Researchers will discuss challenges in measuring the effectiveness of technologies-policies, and the barriers to translating effective technology-policies across cities.
