  • WASHINGTON (September 3, 2016)— President Obama and President Xi jointly announced that the United States and China have joined the Paris Agreement on climate change, just before world leaders meet at the G20 Summit in China. The two countries announced additional areas of cooperation around the Montreal Protocol to phase down HFCs, carbon emissions from aviation, and domestic climate action. With the addition of the U.S. and China, 26 countries have now joined the Paris Agreement, covering nearly 40 percent of global emissions.

  • 随着中国城市的快速扩张以及中心区土地价值的增值,公交枢纽与场站用地(包括首末站、枢纽站以及停保场)由于其公益性用途,在规划中得不到足够重视,常常被高土地溢价的商业用途所替代。城市公交枢纽与场站用地的缺口,已经成为城市公交发展的共同瓶颈:无论在老城区、还是新城区,公交场站的无法落实,造成了公交线路过长,运营成本的提升以及运营水平的下降,给居民出行造成了不便。

    鉴于目前国内在公交场站规划设计理念与技术的存在一定不足,世界资源研究所邀请了公交场站枢纽规划与设计的国际专家布莱恩•史密斯(Brian R. Smith),与国内领先城市,分别于2016年7月20日与21日在北京交通研究发展中心与世界资源研究所北京办公室,举办了两场以公交枢纽场站规划与设计为主题的交流分享会,共同探讨了公交枢纽场站规划与综合开发的前景与国内外最佳实践案例。包括北京、重庆、成都、苏州、贵阳等城市的公交公司、枢纽场站公司、城(交)投公司、交委等一线人员与关键负责人参与了此次研讨与交流会。
