‘Addressing Climate Change – China in Action’ UNDP China and NDRC joint side event COP16 Cancun 1 December, 2010
Thank you all for joining us at this COP 16 side event on Addressing Climate Change in China. We have just heard China's Chief Climate Change Negotiator, Mr. Su Wei, outline the efforts and achievements made by his government to combat climate change. Now I would like to say a few words on the subject, based on UNDP's 30 years experience working with and in China. While China is responding to the climate change challenge on numerous fronts, several areas stand out in our view as particularly noteworthy. Firstly, China has successfully mainstreamed climate change into its development agenda, and is actively attempting to forge a new development model that is both low carbon and sustainable in other respects as well. This is well reflected, for instance, in China's institutional architecture for addressing climate change. Secondly, and as an offshoot of this, China has set rigorous targets for energy efficiency and energy conservation, which have direct impact on carbon emissions. And thirdly, China has made significant investments in the renewable energy field. In each of these areas UNDP has worked closely with China over the years.
