China Low Carbon Forum

China Low Carbon Forum is high-level forum on low carbon economy or sustainable development in China. The forum is jointly launched by several institutions and think tanks at both central and local government levels, such as Department of Macroeconomic Research, Development Research Center of the State Council. The forum aims to bring together the nation’s top policy makers, scholars, and business leaders to address the challenges of a low-carbon economy for the world’s fastest developing country. Against the backdrop of global warming, the forum is designed to promote energy-saving and carbon emission reduction in China. The China Low Carbon Forum is an annual event. The inaugural forum will be held at the Baiyun International Convention Center in Guangzhou from November 28 to 30.[1] During a press release session held in Oct 18, the Organizing Committee announced that Nobel Prize Laureate James Mirrlees would attend the forum as a keynote speaker.[2]
