After the adoption of the Paris Agreement, while development of national level plans such as NDCs have been making progress, development of city level plans for the realization of low-carbon cities are also becoming active. With understanding this background and focusing on city-level activities, some actual examples of activities including city-to-city collaboration through the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) and utilization of the Asia-Pacific Integrated Model (AIM) will be introduced. In the discussion session, panelists will discuss how national-level and city-level activities can create synergistic effects to accelerate the movement to further achieve low-carbon or decarbonized societies in the future.
