Towards A Low-Carbon Future for Yichang, China


During the 2020 United Nations General Assembly, China announced its goal of achieving carbon neutrality before 2060. Although this timeline is further out than the 2050 goals set by nations like the United States, it is nonetheless an ambitious target given China’s extensive emissions footprint, diverse economy, and significant population. To tackle this major challenge, ITDP has spearheaded efforts with regional and global partners to guide Chinese cities towards transport emissions reductions. One promising example of these efforts is in Yichang, a city with a population of over four million nestled in a cluster of cities in central China’s Hubei province.
