The workshop was hosted by the University of Tokyo (Japan) in cooperation with the Japanese Ministry of the Environment, the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) and other partners in the Low Carbon Asia Research Network (LoCARNet). The workshop aimed to strengthen human resources for low-carbon growth strategies and to introduce the Asian Integration Model (AIM) and its application in low-carbon scenario planning and development in order to assess global climate stabilization options, especially to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prevent the effects of climate change.

The workshop provided participants with knowledge on low-carbon models in major Japanese cities including Yokohama, Kawasaki, Kitakyushu and information on joint projects in the field of low carbon development which Japan has been cooperating with localities in Viet Nam to implement. The workshop also provided information on the methods and approaches for low-carbon society scenarios in relation to programs and action plans against climate change. Da Nang delegates also paid a working visit to several waste treatment plants, solar power stations, environmental research institutes and factories which convert food waste into electricity in Japan. The trip has opened up opportunities for cooperation between the city and Japanese partners in the fields of environment and sustainable growth.
