Contributions of Natural Carbon Sink Capacity and Carbon Neutrality in the Context of Net-Zero Carbon Cities: A Case Study of Hangzhou

Yuxin Fan, Fang Wei
2022 Sustainability  
A more precise and comprehensive understanding of the urban natural carbon sink capacity can support the construction of a net-zero carbon city better.  ...  The natural carbon sink in urban space is indispensable for net-zero carbon cities, but the existing measurement system has shortcomings in the measurement elements and precision.  ...  As the largest carbon pool in terrestrial ecosystems [7] , soil accounts for up to 56% of the total urban carbon pool [8] .  ...
