Abstract: Implementation of effective carbon mitigation strategy is pertinent for humanity to combat potential catastrophic consequences of climate change in the 21st century. Such strategy requires in-depth understanding of each contributing factor and their complex interplay. This paper presents the nexus of science, technology, finance, economic and energy policies, political negotiations and international cooperation that affects the collective carbon mitigation pathway, with a focus on the roles of energy efficiency measures and renewable energy. Asian developing countries, with rising economic development status, need to adopt relevant carbon mitigation planning tools and policies and transit to low carbon economy strategically as early as possible. As the current largest emitter, China’s carbon mitigation strategy is analysed against the backdrop of domestic circumstances and serves as a reference for many Asian developing countries.
