Congestion Mitigation and Emission Reduction Annual Workshop 2015 Policy and Public Communication


On September 6, 2015, the World Resources Institute held a seminar on the theme of “Congestion Mitigation and Emission Reduction Annual Workshop 2015 Policy and Public Communication​” at the DoubleTree by Hilton Beijing.


The rapid urbanization and motorization process in China has led to serious air pollution and traffic congestion, which has had a tremendous impact on the lives and health of urban residents, and has also caused huge losses in the social economy. In order to control the deteriorating traffic congestion and emissions, the Beijing Municipal Government issued the “Beijing Clean Air Action Plan 2013-2017” in September 2013, putting the research and implementation of the slow-blocking emission reduction policy on the agenda.


In November 2013, the Beijing Municipal Transportation Commission and the World Resources Institute signed a memorandum of understanding to cooperate in the establishment of a sustainable transportation system and a livable city. Under the framework of this memorandum of cooperation, the World Resources Institute recently cooperated with the Beijing Transportation Development Research Center and the Beijing Traffic Industry Energy Conservation and Emission Reduction Center on the Clean Air Action Plan to conduct research on the congestion mitigation and emission reduction policy. This seminar will invite experts from the UK, Singapore and domestic transportation and environmental protection industries to present and exchange research results and share advanced experience in the field of traffic congestion and reducing emissions, and provide reference for Beijing and other cities to control pollution control. And ideas.
