Nowadays, climate change is no doubt one of the biggest challenges of our times with frequent disasters caused by the extreme weather. As climate change affects the planet, there should be a general recognition of the urgent need for all the parties to combat the climate crisis with collective effort.
China, the U.S, and the EU, the world’s largest three emitters, account for more than half of the global emissions. This is why trilateral cooperation is particularly necessary, and it is time that words turn into actions.
Due to the recent international geopolitical crisis, the EU wants to move away from Russian energy and coal-fired power will be used as an emergency reserve. So, in short term it will affect the progress of EU energy transition. While China and the U.S had expressed that they would collaborate to tackle climate change during the COP26 in Glasgow, nonetheless, effective actions and cooperation we have seen so far are slow in progress. How should we turn the commitments made in the Glasgow Climate Pact into action in the following decisive decade?
Facing the pressing challenges, China Development Institute is going to host an online discussion with experts from the three sides to debate on how China, the U.S. and the EU can work together to highlight the importance of action and cooperation on the occasion of COP27 will be held in Egypt.
- What are the biggest challenges for China, the U.S. and the EU’s collaboration in climate action?
- How could China, the U.S. and the EU better support the vulnerable countries in dealing with climate change, while maintaining economic growth?
- How should China, the U.S. and the EU jointly build a fair and inclusive global climate governance system in order to realize the goal of Paris Agreement?
