The COP21 in Paris represents the foundation of various projects around the world, one of which is the EU-China Low Carbon Cities Conference in Wuhan, China.
The two-day conference took place on 28th of June, launched by the European Union and the People's Republic of China. The agenda included an opening by the visiting EU Commission Director General for Energy Mr. Dominique Ristori and China´s Special Representative on Climate Change Mr. Xie Zhenhua. Other thematic sessions touched upon transition to low carbon development, financing and carbon markets, sustainable urban planning and mobility policies, low carbon buildings, climate adaptation policies, sustainable energy solutions, greenhouse gas inventory methodology and low carbon smart cities.
Neelabh Singh, a Partner of Quercus Group, was invited to address the audience on European Low Carbon City Strategies. Neelabh used the Greater Copenhagen Region's new green growth strategy as a case study and impressed upon the audience the significance of forging partnerships for cities to successfully implement their green growth strategy. The Copenhagen story was very well received by the Chinese audience and there was a keen interest to learn more from Copenhagen.
The conference was part of the implementation of the EU – China Low Carbon Cities Partnership, established in June 2015, during the EU – China Summit.
