IPCC指出,全球49%的温室气体排放与城市有关,与此同时,我们正在经历大规模快速的城市化浪潮,预计2030年全球将有60%的人口生活在城市中,而2050年这个数字将增长至70%。这既是机遇又是挑战,城市化过程需要从传统模式向低碳模式转变,而城市的经济发展模式也需要经历转型的阵痛。可以说,城市转型的成败关乎全球2℃目标的实现与否。中国自2010年开始进行低碳试点工作,截至目前已确定了29个省区81个城市进行低碳试点。如何评价中国城市的低碳发展进程?独立智库绿色创新发展中心联合美国劳伦斯伯克利国家实验室,在能源基金会的支持下开展了一项名为“中国城市绿色低碳发展指数”的研究,通过构建一套多维度综合指标体系,选择115个样本城市,收集数据,基于指标体系和城市分类对中国城市重点领域的绿色低碳发展行动和政策的实施效果进行量化分析,追踪和比较城市绿色低碳发展状态和程度。本次中国环境播客请到这项研究的主要负责人绿色创新发展中心的杨鹂博士为我们详细解读这项研究及其主要发现。 The guest of this episode is Dr. Yang Li, the Program Head of innovative Green Development Program (iGDP). Recently, iGDP, Energy Foundation (China), Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) China Energy Group launched the China Low-carbon Green Index of City (China Logic) to track green low-carbon development in China’s cities to explore future development models. It is a multi-dimensional comprehensive index, which selects 115 cities as samples, collects data, quantifies green low-carbon development policy implementation and actions, and tracks and compares cities’ green low-carbon development. Yang Li shared the details of this research and key findings.
