With China’s pledge of peaking carbon emissions before 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality before 2060, the country is demonstrating increased determination to a profound transformation of 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, both in China and Germany, the Sino-German Cooperation on Climate Change creates a knowledge platform for technical exchange and information sharing between stakeholders. It was established to promote the sharing of lessons learned and to raise climate ambition among stakeholders in their decarbonization pathways.
