Green Low-Carbon Development Think Tank Partnership
The Green Low-Carbon Development Think Tank Partnership (GDTP) was set up by the China Energy Research Council Energy Systems Engineering Committee. It is an informal platform that brings together China’s leading low-carbon research institutes, economists, and well-known energy and environmental experts. GDTP was launched in June 2014.
GDTP aims to facilitate communication and research cooperation between partners and experts, focusing on the best low-carbon research tools and practices at home and abroad, and building practical support systems for technology and decision-making. GDTP promotes green transformation and contributes to the global impact of China’s low-carbon development. The Partnership’s senior advisors are members of the China Engineering Academy, Mr. Du Xiangwan, Professor He Jiankun, Professor Liu Yanhua and Professor Zhou Dadi.
GDTP brings together 75 experts and 45 low-carbon think tank partners. The GDTP Secretariat has offices in Beijing and Shenzhen.
GDTP held its 2018 Annual Conference in Huzhou City, Zhejiang Province on January 26, 2018. Nearly 100 experts and think tank partners attended the conference on the theme: “New Thinking behind China’s Low-Carbon Development and Transformation”. The conference focused on building a national carbon market, China’s medium- and long-term development strategy, and local, low-carbon development during the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-2020). Participants discussed regional low-carbon development, green finance, and the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
GDTP has translated and published a series of books under the leadership of Professor He Jiankun, a senior advisor of GDTP. This work is supported by iGDP, and the books are published by the Dongbei University of Finance and Economics Press.
