Keith Baker, Susan Roaf

    Research output: Book/ReportOther report

    Abstract

    Cities and communities contain complex flows of people, energy, food, goods, transport and waste, which span many of the boundaries and scales used in conventional carbon accounting, and which can make it very challenging to collect and process data that is robust enough to allow for cross-comparison of results. This year the ICARB team worked with a range of international and local organisations such as ICLEI, ISCI, ISES, the Transition Towns movement, Community Energy Scotland, and local authorities across Scotland to develop a conference programme intended to provide a unique forum for the exchange of ideas, knowledge and innovation for city and community
    level carbon accounting.
