Global Climate Governance and China’s Role

China initiated a new round of institutional reforms in 2018 and has established the Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE), taking over responsibilities of climate governance from the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC). The change provided opportunities, as well as challenges, for the Chinese government to enhance its leadership in tackling climate change. In this context, CCICED launched the taskforce on Global Environmental Governance and Ecological Civilization, and assembled a Special Policy Study team with Chinese and international experts working on Global Climate Governance and China’s Role. In 2018, the SPS team organized surveys and discussions with a focus on how to improve capacity for tackling climate change under China’s restructured cabinet.
