Low-Carbon City 2.0 Series

What we did

The '2018 Global Climate Risk Index', published by the international organization Germanwatch, ranks Chinese Taipei at seventh in the world. At the same time, the island's international carbon reduction rating 'climate change performance indicators' failed to achieve the carbon reduction and renewable energy goals. As a result, it is urgent for Chinese Taipei to carry out more ambitious policies in order to tackle the multiple issues. Cities and local governments in Chinese Taipei are at the frontier of energy conservation and carbon reduction. They have been actively performing under the framework of with the national policies for several years. In recent years, the phenomenon of declining marginal effects has gradually emerged in these current schemes. The national government has announced the goals in 2017 of the 2020 carbon reduction targets (2% lower than 2005 level), which has pushed cities to seize for more innovative ideas and international experience in terms of structure and localization.

What we achieved

ICLEI worked with partners to organize the Low-Carbon City 2.0 Professional Series Workshops and The International Conference on Mitigation Strategies for Green Transformation in Cities. International experts from Korea, Japan, Singapore, and Malaysia were invited to give a series of trainings on decarbonizing actions, urban energy efficiency improvement and low-carbon transformation featuring case studies in East Asia cities and the world. The in-depth discussions between local officers and international experts enhanced the sense of responsibility of carbon reduction in various departments, and promoted the role of local governments in changing from “regulation” to the supporting multi-stakeholders in the new climate and low carbon regime.
