China Executive Briefing | Cooperating with China on Climate ChangeVIEW EVENT DETAILS
In perhaps the most significant positive climate development globally since the 2015 Paris Agreement, President Xi Jinping announced at 2020’s United Nations General Assembly that China will strive to peak its carbon emissions before 2030, and more importantly, that it aims for carbon neutrality before 2060.
With the UN Climate Change Conference taking place in Glasgow in November, this Asia Society Australia China Executive Briefing looks at what to expect from China’s ambition to tackle climate change. What are the major policies China is using to decarbonise its economy and how committed is it to match its words to actions?
On the international front, climate change has been identified as an opportunity for collaboration between China and the West amid fractured relations. If this is the case, in what areas could we see greater US-China and Australia-China collaboration, and can global climate cooperation help to mend bilateral ties?
Join us for the fourth instalment of our China Executive Briefing series as Zhang Xiliang, Professor and Director of Tsinghua University’s Institute of Energy, Environment and Economy, Barbara Finamore, Senior Visiting Research Fellow, The Oxford Institute of Energy Studies, and Howard Bamsey, Adjunct Professor, School of Regulation and Global Governance, Australia National University, discuss potential for climate cooperation between China and the West. The discussion will be moderated by Dr Elizabeth Thurbon, Scientia Associate Professor of International Political Economy, UNSW Sydney.
