Consultancy Study of Climate Change
The Environmental Protection Department commissioned a consultancy study in 2008 to review and update the local inventories of greenhouse gas emissions and removals; assess the impacts of climate change on Hong Kong; and recommend long-term strategies and measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as to adapt to the unavoidable effects of climate change. The Consultants have carried out a series of topical studies and taken into account views of major stakeholders expressed at technical workshops. The consultancy study was concluded in early December 2010.
The consultation document presents the proposals drawn up from the consultancy study on climate change in Hong Kong.
