June 19, 2019 – Nanchang – The Ministry of Ecology and Environment and Jiangxi Provincial Government jointly organized the 7th National Low Carbon Day Major Event in Nanchang. The theme of this year’s Low Carbon Day is “Low-Carbon Action, Defending Blue Sky”. The National Low-carbon Day falls on the third day of the National Energy Efficiency Promotion Week in June every year, a campaign in China to raise public awareness of energy efficiency and promote green lifestyles.

Zhao Yingmin, Vice Minister of the MEE, pointed out that progress has been made including significantly-decreased carbon intensity, continuously-increased non-fossil energy and forest stock, promotion of climate adaptation, and international cooperation on climate change. It is hoped that the whole country will jointly adopt the low-carbon concept and contribute to the protection of the ecological environment and the promotion of green low-carbon development.

In the afternoon, the Workshop of Sino-Swiss Adapting to Climate Change in China (ACCC) hosted by the Swiss Development Agency (SDC), discussed the importance of climate adaptation and the urgency of the issue. The GIZ on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) promotes international cooperation on climate risk management jointly with the Chinese and Swiss government.

2009年中德两国签署了《中德关于应对气候变化合作的谅解备忘录》,并启动中德气候伙伴关系项目作为该双边对话的平台,以支持德国环境、自然资源与核安全部和中国生态环境部之间的合作。伴随着2018年中国政府机构改革,该项目进入新的阶段。在此阶段,中德气候伙伴关系项目将致力于推进双边政策对话和气候变化领域的国内、国际合作。同时该项目将支持发展和实施中国中长期低碳发展战略,以此支持中国政府加强其气候治理系统。 国内方面,中德气候伙伴关系项目支持气候双边政策对话(中德应对气候变化工作组会),并增强对德国经验和最佳实践的借鉴,包括提高发展气候和能源行动的综合计划以及城市适应气候变化的能力。国际方面,该项目将增强气候政策及其实施的最佳实践模式的相关知识。 针对在中德应对气候变化工作组会中确立的议题,该项目将承担IKI项目孵化器的职责。作为信息交流接口,该项目加强与IKI项目的国内、国际合作伙伴的交流,尤其是关于《联合国气候变化框架公约》(UNFCCC)相关议程的交流。
