Transforming China onto a low carbon pathway

The overall objective of this project is to produce feasible projections for China’s transition to a low carbon economy, leading to a peak and decline in Chinese emissions and using alternative methods to characterise China’s potential mitigation challenge in the coming decade.

This will be based around specific objectives to:

1) independently verify and reduce uncertainty in Chinese emissions to bound future growth rates,

2) quantify the drivers for the disparate development in provincial emissions,

3) apply innovative modelling to future Chinese emissions.
