Low Carbon Cities in China: National Policies and City Action Factsheets

China has also initiated 42 low carbon pilots, including 6 provinces and 36 cities, which represent various geographic locations, resource endowments, economic growth patterns, industrial mixes, and energy-use behaviors. These pilots have developed and implemented many policies, programs, and measures to achieve low carbon development paths at the provincial and municipal levels in the long term. Factsheets in this document are based on analyzing actions in 10 cities out of the 42 low carbon pilots.

10 Key Principles for Local Air Quality Management

As China’s government moves to more assertively reduce air pollution, Energy Foundation China and its partners Clean Air Alliance of China, ClimateWorks, and the Regulatory Assistance Project have compiled a list of 10 key principles for sound air quality management. These principles are offered to China’s local governments to assist them in meeting their increasingly demanding air quality improvement targets. They can also help reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) – an environmental issue that China is also now taking stronger actions on. These principles help reduce air pollution and GHGs at the same time, bringing synergy and cost-effectiveness to air quality and climate policy.

Analysis on the Carbon Emission Reduction Co-benefit of Coal Cap Policy in China's Air Pollution Prevention and Control Action Plan

This study shows that coal consumption control can significantly contribute to both air pollution control and Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) reduction. The CO2 reduction co-benefits brought by such policy may vary via implementing different coal use substitution plans. This study suggests that local governments should consider maximizing the CO2 reduction co-benefits when designing coal consumption reduction and substitution plans.
