Events: IGES Side Event at Smart City Week 2013 "Introducing Low Carbon Cities in Asia" organized by IGES on 22 Oct 2013

  •  IGES Side Event at Smart City Week 2013

    "Introducing Low Carbon Cities in Asia"

This seminar looks at ways to facilitate economic growth in Asia while improving living standards. Representatives from cities across the region will discuss leap-frogging and environmentally-friendly strategies when transitioning to a low-carbon and recycling based society. The aim is to develop a network that will allow knowledge transfer between cities, introducing Japan's low-carbon technologies and a new Japanese crediting mechanism (i.e. Joint Crediting Mechanism.)

This meeting intends to:
(1) introduce successful case studies on low-carbon city developments that were made possible through city to city partnerships (e.g. Surabaya City in Indonesia, Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, Iskandar City in Malaysia);
(2) offer insights into assistance given to Japanese businesses overseas by Japan's national and local governments, as well as the respective learning platforms for academia, municipalities and the business community;

(3) discuss barriers and countermeasures when promoting technological transfer for low-carbon development.
