Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) Implementation – Climate adaptation good practice and lessons learned from Germany and the European Union

Dr. Gerhard Rappold’s report introduces, but also reviews the development of adaptation strategies in Germany and the EU. It furthermore provides good practices and lessons learned within climate change policies. The report additionally discusses the technical outline for indicator development. Each indicator is accompanied by its own fact sheet. Therefore, complementary to his report, Dr. Gerhard Rappold prepared for GIZ seven fact sheets for the Metropolitan Region Ruhr, Hamburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Schleswig-Holstein, RESIN Climate Risk Typology, RESIN Adaptation Options Library and the PIEVC Program. The fact sheets can be found here: https://climatecooperation.cn/climate/adaptation-fact-sheets/

Germany and China signed the Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation in Combatting Climate Change and initiated this bilateral dialogue as "Sino-German Climate Partnership". The project has been established to support the cooperation between the German Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and the Chinese Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE). The new phase of the project starts in 2018 with close alignment to the restructuring at the Chinese government. In this phase, the project aims to advance the policy dialogue and cooperation with the Chinese partners domestically as well as within the international context of climate change. Part of the work will be supporting the development and implementation of China's medium- and long-term low-carbon development strategies, hence by supporting the Chinese government in strengthening the climate governance system. Domestically the SGCP project supports the policy dialogue on climate change (Sino-German Working Group on Climate Change) and enhances the exchange of German experiences and best practices, this includes strengthening capacities for the development of integrated climate and energy action plans as well as adaptation concepts for cities. On international level the SGCP project enhances the knowledge of both patterns about best practices in regard of climate policies and their implementation. For new cooperation topics identified by the Working Group on Climate Change, the project acts as an incubator for IKI development. As interface for information management, it serves a as a hub for exchange between partners of the IKI within and outside China, especially within the UNFCCC process.
