International Forum on Low Carbon Cities

Date & Location : 

23-24 November 2021, Virtual

While many cities in North-East Asia have already initiated low carbon city (LCC) development policies and strategies to reduce GHG emissions, more cities need to commit local actions to carbon neutrality following to the goals announced by each national government. To promote knowledge sharing and peer-learning on LCC activities among cities, academia and research institutes, UNESCAP East and North-East Asia Office (NEASPEC secretariat) and the Incheon Metropolitan City jointly organize the first International Forum on Low Carbon Cities virtually on 23-24 November 2021, in collaboration with Incheon Climate and Environment Research Center, ICLEI, Innovative Green Development Program and Green Climate Fund. 

The forum intends to complement the ongoing initiatives and bring together local governments, international organizations, regional city networks, experts and other stakeholders to deliberate key issues on scaling up city-level climate actions. 

  • Registration is required by 21 November 2021 at  
  • Simultaneous interpretation for English-Chinese/Mongolian/Korean/Russian will be provided.
