The Role of Asian Cities in Global Climate Diplomacy
Thu 17 November 2016, 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM HKT
Singapore and Hong Kong – iconic cities in Asia – are important members of transnational urban networks on climate change.
During our luncheon discussion, we will present major findings of a pioneering study on the role of Hong Kong and Singapore in these global and regional networks. More specifically, the study investigates how far these two cities, ‘act globally’ through transnational networks.
What were the motives for the two cities to join the climate networks? How do both cities engage in their networks in practice? To what extent has the membership of the networks impacted on climate actions in their domestic policies?
Join us in a debate on the future of a “green” Hongkong!
