CCS Features Macro Strategies for China City Low Carbon Economic Transition

At the June 8 US China Low Carbon Smart Cities Summit in Beijing, Tom Peterson of The Center for Climate Strategies (CCS) joined senior representatives of China’s National Center for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation, the World Bank, World Resources Institute (news in Mandarine), China Center for Urban Development, and the Global Environmental Institute (GEI) to review China’s shift to low carbon, high growth economic development. The panel explored how to identify new engines of growth and transition to a low-carbon economy, how to identify new engines of low carbon economy development for resource-based industrial cities, and how to promote low carbon economic transition via institutional and capacity innovation. Tom outlined the use of specific macroeconomic strategies identified by CCS through comprehensive economic planning to drive gains in jobs, income, and economic growth.
