Sino-German Cooperation on Climate Change – NDC Implementation
As of: March 2021
As the world’s largest emitter of greenhouse gases, China faces many challenges in achieving the nationally determined contributions (NDC) it has set for 2030. The project is part of the Sino-German cooperation and contributes to the implementation of ambitious climate policies within the 14th Five-Year Plan. In particular, the project supports the development of knowledge, resources and capacities within the national government as well as within the administrations of selected provinces. Key issues include the national coordination of climate policies and climate legislation. In addition, the project cooperates with provinces and cities on mitigating greenhouse gases, adapting to climate change and developing climate finance opportunities. The cooperation also includes mitigation in industrial sectors. The political dialogue with Germany is an important element of the project.
