Sino-German Cooperation on Climate Change

About Us

With China’s pledge of peaking carbon emissions before 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality before 2060, the country is demonstrating an increased determination to a profound low-carbon transformation of its economy and society. The Sino-German Cooperation on Climate Change is supported by the German Federal Government through the International Climate Initiative (IKI) being implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.

To facilitate the Sino-German policy dialogue on climate change and to accelerate climate action in these two countries, the Sino-German Cooperation on Climate Change provides a knowledge-sharing platform for technical exchange among stakeholders. It was established to facilitate the sharing of lessons learned and to raise climate ambition among stakeholders in their decarbonisation pathways.

Our work focuses on the following areas:

  • Climate Policy on Mitigation, Adaptation, Transparency
  • Trilateral Cooperation on Climate Change
  • Regional Cooperation on NDC Implementation with Several Chinese Provinces
  • Industrial Decarbonization
  • Carbon Markets
  • Sustainable Finance, Climate Finance
  • Montreal Protocol and its Kigali Amendment
  • Non-CO₂ Greenhouse Gas Mitigation
