Genia Kostka will be presenting her research on “Local Energy Efficiency Policy Implementation in China: Bridging the Gap Between National Priorities and Local Interests” on October 6 from 12:00 - 1:00 pm. With the end of China’s Eleventh Five-Year Plan approaching, this study analyzes the policy implementation choices and methods that sub-national governments have employed to meet national energy efficiency guidelines and fulfill their respective energy intensity targets. The research suggests that local governments implement energy efficiency policies and projects by ‘bundling’ with salient business, economic, safety, and pollution interests and concerns in their locales. This research was conducted as part of AusAid's The Leadership Program: Development Leaders, Elites and Coalitions (LPDLEC) www.lpdlec.org.
The Brown Bag Series is an off the record, in-house discussion of the current research trajectory of members of the Asia Pacific Foundation research team, or from invited guests. Please bring your lunch and join us. RSVP to email@example.com to confirm your attendance.
