Low Carbon Communities in Guangzhou Province

ISC worked with local organizations to build small-scale low carbon communities within the Guangzhou province. Specifically:

  • We engaged Canke, a local NGO, to support the day-to-day low carbon planning and project development work by the communities.
  • ISC played an advisory role and brought in national and international experts on community action planning and low carbon infrastructure projects.
  • To advance this and future such projects, ISC developed a Low Carbon Community Action Planning Guidebook (the first of its kind in China) to inform the process.

The project was able to leverage Chinese government funding, engage participants in the low carbon planning process, and increase local NGO capacity to manage the process on the ground.
