Abstract

The objective for this project was to work out the practical recommendations for the curb of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission at a regional level. This work was carried out in the following steps: a survey on GHG emission, the identification of the overall historical and current GHG emission rates as well as a breakdown into economical sectors, the forecast for future GHG emissions (up to 2020), identification of the technological opportunities for GHG emission reduction and an assessment of their potential reduction, identification of the main barriers for low-carbon development and the drafting of proposals and the instruments for GHG reduction. A draft for the low-carbon strategy was discussed with stakeholders and delivered to the government of Sverdlovsk Oblast. Keywords: greenhouse gases (GHG) emission, low-carbon strategy, low-carbon development, carbon footprint, energy efficiency.
