Abstract

Cities throughout Asia have experienced an unprecedented economic development over the past decades. In many cases, this has contributed to their rapid and uncontrolled growth, and has resulted in multiple problems, which include a rapid population increase, enhanced environmental pollution, collapsing traffic systems, dysfunctional waste management, as well as a rapid increase in the consumption of energy, water, and other resources. This research focuses on demonstrating how clean energy policies and Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) can help achieve multiple energy, environmental, public health and economic benefits in a cost-effective way in Asian cities. To this aim, the specific target is set to design and develop an analytical approach, which helps policy makers and relevant stakeholders to determine opportunities for LEDS and addressing the main relevant policy instruments available, based on the analysis of the practical experience with LEDS and related processes to date in their respective cities.
