Multiple Benefits Assessment of the Low Emission Development Strategies in Asia Pacific Cities

This research will develop and demonstrate a new strategic planning mechanism for achieving multiple benefits of Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) in Asia Pacific cities, together with a robust analytical framework that can be used to assess those benefits during the development and implementation process. The research will: (i) develop a modeling framework in order to quantify the effect of LEDS on four main areas of energy systems, environment, public health and local economy at the city level; (ii) create an executive package of policies with an assessment of implementation challenges in each city, and (iii) develop a strategic plan of the urban multiple benefits of LEDS based on the comparative analysis among the selected cities as the main output of this research. The five global cities which will be evaluated in detail in this research are Tokyo, Sydney, Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur and Delhi. This research will focus on ‘Buildings’, ‘Waste’ and ‘Transport’ as the key sectors as they can offer substantial urban climate mitigation potential through the implementation of LEDS in the selected cities. Five expert workshops will be organised with local experts from each city in order to present outcomes.
