11 April 2019 – Beijing – On the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Sino-German Climate Partnership, experts from Chinese and German government ministries, institutions, and organizations met in Beijing to enable knowledge transfer and exchange on shared challenges, synergies and scaling-up potential of IKI projects. The workshop was hosted by the Chinese Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE).

Participants at the workshop discussed a wide range of matters within the context of Sino-German cooperation and climate policy implementation, such as energy, biodiversity, urbanization, transport, carbon markets, and regional development. The experience and ideas exchanged provided a litany of lessons learned for both sides to incorporate into policy design and implementation going forward. Furthermore, the workshop served as a platform to assess the successes of the partnership and demonstrate how climate collaboration is one of the cornerstones of strengthening the bilateral relationship between the two nations. The workshop takes place once in a year, either in Germany or in China.

“Through this cooperation, [Germany] has deepened its understanding of China’s needs, problems, and challenges in these fields,” said Stephan Contius, Commissioner for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at Germany’s Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). “Our cooperation is the driver for strategic dialogue between our two countries.”

Mr. Chen Zhihua, Director of the Division of International Cooperation, Department of Climate Change from the Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) emphasized the importance of the intensive policy exchange and called for an integrated approach for alliance of the goals on low carbon transition and climate mitigation and adaptation.

The workshop as a preparatory event is part of the annual Working Group Meeting on Climate Change between Germany and China held on April 12, 2019. Much of the workshop involved discussing key areas of existing cooperation and potential for future cooperation between China and Germany.

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。
