Scott Vaughan on CCICED and Global Climate Governance

On September 22, 2020, President Xi Jinping announced at the 75th Session of the U.N. General Assembly that China aims to have carbon dioxide emissions peak before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality before 2060. It was the first time that China put forward the goal of carbon peaking and carbon neutrality, which attracted significant attention from the international community. In the report delivered by Xi to the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), he also noted “working actively and prudently toward the goals of reaching peak carbon emissions and carbon neutrality.” It was the first time that “dual carbon” goals were included in the report to the CPC National Congress, which is of great significance. Regarding the topic, China News Release recently interviewed Scott Vaughan, International Chief Advisor of the China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development (CCICED).
