The Asia-Pacific Forum on Green Low-Carbon Development (Forum) brings together policymakers and technology developers to showcase global, regional, and country-level success stories in promoting the development deployment of low-carbon policies and technologies. This year’s theme is “Low Carbon Solutions for Our Green Future” and will support and promote cooperation and innovation on commercially scalable low-carbon solutions for green development in urban and rural areas.

Now on its fourth year, the Forum will be hosted by the Hunan Department of Ecology and Environment (DEE) and Asian Development Bank (ADB), organized by the Hunan Innovative Low-Carbon Center and Broad Group. It will be held on 16–18 October 2019 at the Broad Group Campus, Broad Town, Changsha, PRC.
