Climate change mitigation at city level is one of the newest types of policies to mitigate growing emissions. These so called ‘low-carbon cities’ (LCC) often involve a combination of various policies and instruments – for example focussed on energy efficiency of buildings and reduction of landfill gas – that contribute to lowering the urban greenhouse gas emissions.
Your thesis/internship would fit in the context of a research project called ‘Linking low-carbon cities to carbon markets: metropolitan solutions for socially inclusive low-carbon development in Southeast Asia’. We are looking for up to three motivated Master students who will be supervised by the Environmental Policy Group (ENP) and/or the Environmental Economics and Natural Resources Group (ENR).
