CCICED-AGM 2019 – Raising climate ambition through international cooperation

2019年 12月 30日

June 2, 2019 – GIZ supported the opening day of the 2019 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development (CCICED), one of the most high-level events in China where key issues on climate governance, biodiversity and green urbanization are intensively discussed. Xie Zhenhua, former Vice-Chair of NDRC, and Åsa Romson, former Deputy Prime Minister of Sweden jointly chaired the theme forum on “Post-Katowice Global Climate Governance”. Around the two major topics of “From Katowice to Climate Neutralization” and “Fast and Practical Climate Action Solutions”, the Forum invited Chinese and foreign experts to participate in the discussion and make suggestions.

Xie Zhenhua introduced the topic, noting that the final outcome of Katowice reflected increased confidence in the international community’s ability in dealing with the gravity of climate change. The trend of global green and low-carbon transformation highlighted by the Paris Agreement could not be changed, which is consistent with China’s strategic choice of pursuing high-quality development and strengthening the construction of ecological civilization.

It was highlighted that Germany and China have accepted that climate change is the common concern of humankind and needs to be addressed through international cooperation. It was suggested to enhance ambition: first, to make the argument through pilots and cooperate to deal with challenges and barriers; second, to enhance specific exchange on technologies and make sure that the climate ambitious people have access to the newest and cleanest technologies available in their sector of work; third, to make a blueprint when updating NDC goals and developing a mid-century strategy (Paris Agreement 4.19).

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。
