The Forum brings together policy makers and technology developers to showcase global, regional and country-level success stories. These are promoting low-carbon polices and technologies. This year’s theme is “Low-Carbon Solutions for our Green Future” and will encourage cooperation and innovation on commercially scalable low-carbon solutions for green development in urban and rural areas. The Forum is hosted by the Department of Ecology and Environment (DEE) the Asian Development Bank (ADB), and co-organized by the Hunan Innovative Low-Carbon Center and Broad Group. Former United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, and XIE Zhenhua, China’s Special Representative on Climate Change, were among the keynote speakers.

Since 2016, the ADB and the Government of Hunan Province have successfully co-hosted three previous Forums. Over 500 delegates from 37 countries participated in the 2018 event, engaging in North-South and South-South dialogue and cooperation. The Asia-Pacific Forum on Green Low-Carbon Development was initiated in 2015 in an agreement between the ADB and the Government of Hunan Province to promote climate technology development and deployment.
