EU-China Cooperation on Climate Mitigation and Adaptation in the LULUCF Sector

Climate change and biodiversity loss are mutually reinforcing emergencies and closely interconnected threats. Climate change is indeed one of the main drivers of biodiversity loss, while biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation contribute to the problems of climate change both through rising greenhouse gas emissions and weakening of carbon sinks and stocks or increased vulnerability to climate impacts.

This report elucidates the series of expert dialogues, namely “Improve Joint Monitoring and Modelling between Biodiversity Conservation and Climate Actions”, which took place between May and September 2021 and aimed at promoting EU-China cooperation on climate mitigation and adaptation in the LULUCF sector. The report shows the vitality and prospect of the long-standing cooperation between the EU and China to further step-up joint efforts of climate action and contribute to improving awareness.
