International Symposium: From Visioning to Implementation of Low-Carbon Transport in Asia

16 October 2013 @ 12:00 am

In Asian developing countries, rapid economic growth will cause drastic emission growth, which will become significant part of future global emissions. This symposium is aimed at discussing how to design long-term measures to develop low-carbon transport systems in Asia in a leap-frog manner and in a back-casting way, decoupling economic growth with CO2 emission increase. For the discussion, we invite international experts on low-carbon development of urban transport and inter-regional transport.

The symposium is sponsored by the “Low-Carbon Asia” research project, funded by Ministry of the Environment, Japan, as the Environment Research and Technology Development Fund. We have sessions to discuss the outcome of the project on the transport part, “Low-Carbon Transport in Asia”. On the 2nd day, we also have a collaborative symposium with our partners working on low-carbon development of various sectors in the “Low-Carbon Asia” project.
