Description

The Concept of the Low-Carbon Town in the APEC Region provides a basic idea of what is a low-carbon town and an effective approach to its development. It aims to promote the development of low-carbon towns in the APEC region by providing a basic principle that can assist the central and local government officials of the member economies in planning effective low-carbon policies and in formulating an appropriate combination of low-carbon measures while taking socio-economic conditions and city-specific characteristics into consideration.
 
The report consists of Volume I: Main Chapter, which provides an overview of the concept, including basic approach to develop the LCT, measures to use in the development of LCT and evaluation of the effect of low-carbon measures; and Volume II: Low-Carbon Measures, which presents low-carbon measures with their applicability and case examples.
