Global Carbon Project Tsukuba International Office

The Global Carbon Project launched the Urban and Regional Carbon Management (URCM) initiative in 2005. URCM is a place-based and policy relevant initiative aimed at promoting sustainable, low-carbon, and climate-resilient urban development. Besided conducting research in various areas related to urban and regional carbon management, URCM is active in networking and coordinating conferences and international workshops. The most recent international workshop of URCM entitled Climate Compatible Urban Development: Towards Developing Assessment Framework for Cities took place in Bangkok from 12–13 March 2013. This workshop was successful in setting the context for development of an integrated assessment system for guiding climate-compatible and resilient urban development.
