Overview of the side event

This event focuses on city-level low carbon activities in particular those based on AIM model simulation with the aim of providing a comprehensive picture of GHG emission trends and reduction plans. We will introduce the examples of development of Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP) of Shiga prefecture, Kyoto city, Iskandar Malaysia region, Putrajaya city, and Ho Chi Minh City using AIM. We will also discuss such topics as how to diffuse implementation actions such as low carbon projects in Osaka city, monitoring and reporting system of buildings in Tokyo Metropolitan Government, Eco Life Challenge program focused on primary schools in Kyoto city (already applied to the Iskandar Malaysia region).
