China-Climate Change Research Center
"Provision of technical support to low-carbon growth planning in low-carbon pilots in five provinces and eight cities. These 13 low carbon pilot regions, which cover 27% of the population, 36% of energy consumption, have the potential of contributing one third of China’s total carbon mitigation. The outcomes of these demonstration efforts will serve as examples for the rest of the country, and as such possess enormous spillover potential. These pilot governments require assistance in (1) developing a GHG inventory, (2) analyzing feasible long term carbon mitigation goals, (3) assessing climate change impacts and economic impacts, (4) calculating investment needs, and (5) identifying green GDP growth opportunities."
