10th December 2012, 12:30 to 14:00, Seminar Room 010, Dept of Geography, Dr Clive Sabel, University of Exeter Urban Reduction of GHG Emissions in China and Europe (URGENCHE) is an EU FP7 project bringing together a team of interdisciplinary scientists to develop and apply a methodological framework for the assessment of the overall risks and benefits of alternative greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction policies on health and well being in China and Europe. The project aims to evaluate the current contributions of the heat and power use in the urban building stock, urban traffic and transportation needs, and the overall spatial plan of the city with respect to GHG emissions, other environmental stressors, environment quality, public health and well being of the population. Secondly, to evaluate the future public health and well being impacts of the local implementation of alternative GHG-policies which would meet the locally applicable national, EU and/or international GHG-reduction targets specifically in each city. Case study cities range throughout Europe and China. This seminar will report from the first year results and present challenges identified. Chair: Prof Sarah Curtis
