The Yangtze River in China has one of the world’s largest river basins, home to more than 400 million people. CCICED’s Special Policy Study team on “High-quality development of river basins and adaptation to climate change”, consisting of Chinese and international experts, are leading global research efforts on river basin management in the face of accelerating climate risks.
On March 20, 2023, the Special Policy Study team held the event “Managing river basins as a system” at the New York Water Week. The event was hosted by The Nature Conservancy, Deltares, Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, and the China Academy of Urban Planning and Design.
