Low Carbon City: A Guidebook for City Planners and Practioners
The report aims to provide basic guidance to city level policy makers, urban planners, transport planners and consultants. There is a focus on the meaning of ‘low carbon,’ low carbon scenarios and alternate development pathways to achieve these scenarios; and the role of low carbon development in India. Mitigation and adaptation as part of a framework for climate compatible development are explored and there is an evaluation of global energy systems.
This is one of three reports released by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) as part of a project on 'Promoting Low Carbon Transport in India.'
