On 20 November 2019, the project organised a Planning Workshop together with the National Center for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation to support NDC implementation in China. The workshop was attended by over 30 climate experts from leading research institutes, universities, consulting companies in China and German experts from the New Climate Institute and Climate Analytics.
Based on the scope of engagement of the Chinese Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), the workshop was divided into eight thematic groups. These included industry dialogue, regional early peaking, climate policy and mechanisms, climate legislation, climate finance, capacity building at provincial and municipal level, adaptation and the Sino-German Climate Partnership. Through intensive exchanges between experts and multiple rounds of discussions, the workshop protocol formed a strong basis for an improved understanding of the potential to strengthen the climate policy framework and the capacity-building demands of the climate authorities in China.
