Research Nodes on Urban Carbon Management Research
Urban and Regional Carbon Management Initiative of Global Carbon Project
Urban and Regional Carbon Management (URCM) Initiative of Global Carbon Project (GCP) is a place-based and policy-relevant scientific initiative aimed to support carbon management and sustainable urban development. URCM initiative facilitates the initiation of pioneering research, bridges scientific understanding to policy discussions through science-policy dialogue though conferences and workshops and synthesizes studies to provide a comprehensive and holistic policy relevant picture of urban and regional carbon management.
Urban Energy and Climate Modeling Forum (UECMF)
Urban Energy and Climate Modeling Forum (UECMF) is a network of professionals and institutions working on urban energy and climate modeling issues. The forum currently comprises of 38 professionals and aims for concrete research collaboration opportunities, ways to bridge data gaps and to make publications in international journals to enhance the state of knowledge in the area of urban energy and carbon management.
Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN)
Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN) is a consortium of individuals and institutions dedicated to the analysis of climate change mitigation and adaptation and energy issues from an urban perspective. It is designed to enhance cutting-edge scientific, economic and planning-related research and to promote knowledge sharing among researchers and urban decision-makers and stakeholders about all aspects of climate change and cities.
IEA City Energy International Modeling Expert Group
This group consists of urban energy and carbon related experts working on to analyses global and regional urban energy use and carbon emissions together with World Energy Outlook team of International Energy Agency.
GEA Urbanization Group
This group consists of experts carrying out assessment for urbanization and energy related analyses within the Global Energy Assessment.
Initiative to Attain Resilient and Sustainable Relationships among Carbon, Climate and Cities (RESUCCCITIES)
RESUCCCITIES initiative seeks to address both societal challenges and research gaps by bringing together natural and social scientists to bridge the gap between global models and fragmented urban case studies.
Nagoya University Initiative for Climatic Change Mitigation in Cities
Nagoya University Initiative for Climate Change Mitigation in Cities aims to promote research and education program related to climate change mitigation in cities, especially in the rapidly developing Asian cities, with the help of building an international network of universities, research institutes, international organizations, NGOs and others to explore research & education program, exchange information and form an international research team.
Cities for Climate Protection (CCP), International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives
Cities for Climate Protection (CCP) Campaign assists cities to adopt policies and implement quantifiable measures to reduce local greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, and enhance urban livability and sustainability. CCP program has 692 participating cities in 31 countries worldwide and account for approximately 15% of global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. Although ICLEI is an action oriented network assisting local government, they have generated large amount of data that research communities are interested in.
Clean Air Initiative for Asian Cities (CAI-Asia)
CAI-Asia is network of government agencies, NGOs, research institutes, international organizations, and private sectors working to improve the air quality and climate change mitigation in Asian cities through partnerships and sharing experiences including on co-benefits of urban air quality and climate change. Co-benefit assessment remains one of the key areas of CAI-Asia that can assist research communities.
Notice to Researchers from Developing Countries: Online Access to Research in the Environment (OARE) enables researchers in developing countries to gain access to one of the world's largest collections of environmental science research. Please see the list of countries eligible for OARE to check if you may be eligible for this service.
