2013 workshop on urban planning and management, Kanazawa (Feb.18-20, 2013)

Low Carbon City in Chinese Cities

Standards and indicators are important for measuring carbon performance of a city. How to account for carbon emitted when activities and services are consumed in locations is a key issue in urban area. Furthermore, the investigation on relationship between carbon emitted in a city and its underlying drivers – population, economic structure, energy source, transport and built infrastructure, and urban services – is complicated. This complexity makes it especially hard to evaluate planning alternatives for low carbon city. Nevertheless a low-carbon city is a sustainable, efficient, livable, and developing indicators for evaluating a city’s sustainable development objective are widely concerned in the world.
