IES Webinar: Solving the Sustainable City Paradox

Tuesday, 12 December 2017 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

This webinar will explore some of the challenges and solutions involved in mapping city-scale urban needs in a rapidly changing Indonesian major metropolitan. Harry will draw from a recently completed project, commissioned by the IFC, to develop a city wide low carbon roadmap to align with the national target of a 30% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions as required under the Paris Agreement.

The lens of analysis will be predominantly carbon emissions and what projects can deliver savings against a business-as-usual projection; however these projects cannot be considered in isolation of wider social factors and how changes in population, economy, and technology can offer avenues to deliver the dual goal of reduced carbon emissions and improved quality of life for citizens.
