ISAP2015 Lunch Session

Low Carbon Technology Cooperation
in Asia toward COP21: Possibilities and Challenges

This lunchtime session reports an overview of the Expert Meeting to be held on 26-27 July in Yokohama to discuss Low Carbon Technology Cooperation. It convenes experts from the US and Europe to discuss the challenges and possible solutions to promoting low-carbon technology. This is complemented with presentations on the Japanese perspective and followed by wide-ranging discussions on areas, organizations and mechanisms by which to enhance cooperation on promoting low-carbon technology to developing countries (with a focus on Asia). The ISAP lunchtime session provides an opportunity to present these findings to attendees from around the Asia-Pacific region and have a further discussion in order to solicit their inputs for consideration as the project develops towards COP-21 and beyond.
