[Saitama City and Tokyo Prefecture] Participated in a Seminar on City to City Cooperation with Kuala Lumpur City

The 26th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), held in November 2021, adopted the Glasgow Climate Accord, which pursues efforts to limit global temperature rise to within 1.5°C of pre-industrial levels. To achieve this goal, ICLEI’s members are boosting for a decarbonization domino through inter-city cooperation and other means.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Saitama City, which are promoting inter-city collaboration projects, participated in the hybrid seminar “Toward a Zero Carbon Kuala Lumpur City” co-hosted by the City of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, and the Institute for the Global Environmental Strategies Foundation on August 8.

TMG started a city-to-city partnership with the City of Kuala Lumpur in FY 2019 to support the establishment of a low and zero carbon building system; since FY 2022, Saitama City has joined the partnership to share knowledge on developing decarbonized city blocks.

At this seminar, the City of Kuala Lumpur presented its initiatives, including the One Samaju District, a “carbon-neutral growth center,” and demonstrated that it is actively promoting measures toward a zero-carbon city. The Tokyo Metropolitan Government presented its efforts in the area of resource recycling and revision of ordinances toward the 2030 carbon half, and Saitama City introduced its “Smart Home Community” case study in the Misono district.
