On 21-22 November, JSPS and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) cosponsored the fourth China-Japan Science Forum, this time co-organized by the Low-Carbon Development Institute (LCDI) in Hainan. Venued in Haikou City, Hainan Province, the forum featured lectures around the theme “Low Carbon City and Economy” by more than 30 frontline Chinese and Japanese researchers, and was attended by some 50 researchers in related fields and students interested in the topics addressed.
Diverse in range, these topics included such content as recycling-intensive cities, low-carbon transportation, water-resource management, energy-saving urban planning, urban climatology, and environmental policy and economy. In the closing addresses by the organizers, it was advocated that efforts be continued to advance Sino-Japanese collaboration in this critical field so as to solve the host of issues germane to developing low-carbon cities in both countries.
