Research Workshop on Carbon Neutrality and Beyond in East Asiaの開催

Research Workshop on Carbon Neutrality and Beyond in East Asia
Date: December 15, 2020, 2:00pm-4:30pm (JST) / 5:00am-7:30am (UTC)
Venue: online (ZOOM)

After the 2020 UN general assembly, China, Japan, and South Korea have
announced their carbon/GHG-neutral pledges one after another. This
research workshop aims to stocktake deep emission reduction scenario
researches in the three countries, exchange views on the feasibility
and future policy assumptions of such scenarios, as well as to
brainstorm the research agenda of carbon neutrality in East Asia.
