UNFCCC Emissions

Posted by on

The Government also intensively pursued”a concept for a low-carbon and sustainable country. In the framework of this concept 52 rural communities, three cities (Taipei, Taichung and Tainan) and district (Yilan) as model communities selected in terms of low-carbon and sustainable environment aiming, to encourage the people of Taiwan, to actively participate in the development of such a home. Also promotes the Government Akkuwechselsysteme for electric bikes (E-bikes), geographic information systems (GIS) for cycle path networks and hybrid cars. It is also planning to replace all traditional buses in urban areas, and to build a low-carbon transport infrastructure over the next decade by Electrobuses. Given the major challenges posed by climate change have Taiwan’s efforts to reduce CO2 emissions produced concrete results in recent years. From 2008 to 2012, the annual energy consumption by an average 0.1%, a significant improvement over the period fell 2004 2007, where he had risen to an average of 3.3%. Moreover, CO2 emissions generated by fuel combustion fell for the first time in 2008 and between 2008 and 2012 these emissions by an average of 0.6% per year declined, also an improvement over the period 2004 2007, where emissions annually rose by an average of 2.7%.

A closer look at 2012, we find that Taiwan’s economic growth by 1.32% enjoyed, while at the same time CO2 emissions to 1.90% declined. This shows that an inverse relationship between economic growth and greenhouse gas emissions already exists. The Government of the Republic of China has actively sought international support, to his room in the international community expand. She brought a pragmatic and constructive dialog with China in motion and thus achieved significant results. In 2009 the Government of the Republic of China was invited for the first time by Member States of the United Nations, officially the World Health Assembly (WHA) as an observer to participate in, and since then we have participated each year. Moreover, Taiwan was invited in September 2013 to the 38th session of the Assembly of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) as a guest of the President of the Council. Our participation in these two bodies is of great symbolic importance and for us very encouraging. We hope that these precedents take into account the international community and it will allow Taiwan to participate fully in the UNFCCC. In this way, it is possible to receive support from the international community and to make itself a meaningful contribution.
