According to the 5th Assessment Report recently released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), stimulating effective mitigation and adaptation approaches to tackle climate change has become the most urgent issue for all over the world. For the past few years, the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) of Taiwan has been promoting numerous actions and implementations with regard to greenhouse gas management in order to cut down national carbon dioxide emissions and to achieve sustainable development. In the meanwhile the actions also echo to the international tendency even though Taiwan has not been committed to reducing its emissions in the international climate negotiation.
The project established the ‘Clean Carbon Alliance’ in order to assist and support the EPA to facilitate industrial carbon reduction and climate risk management. The alliance aims at promoting bilateral interactive communication between the
government and industries as well as civil society, collecting and analyzing strategies that domestic and foreign enterprises have done to respond to climate change, and enhancing the public-private partnership which is regarded as a good alternative to realize the variety of climate change mitigation and adaptation projects by bringing both private and sector resources together. Furthermore, to strengthen the dissemination of climate change information and the popularity of the coalition, the project sets up a website and a social networking site, platform for publishing integrative information, videos, newsletters, etc. Meanwhile, it could also widespread international industrial reduction and climate change issues and that would be helpful to increase public awareness and to be geared to the international tendency.
