Decarbonization in Asia China, May 30, 2023

The world’s efforts to alleviate poverty and inequality and achieve sustainable development have been undermined by multiple crises of climate change, and biodiversity losses, coupled with the global economic downturn, the energy and food crises, geopolitical tensions and the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the IPCC report, the average global temperature may reach or even temporally exceed 1.5°C in the near term, due to the significant gaps in mitigation ambition and action.

Asia is one of the most vulnerable regions to climate change, and home to the most vibrant growth in population, industrialization and energy consumption in the next couple of decades. Nations in the region have made climate pledges in their Nationally Determined Contributions as part of the Paris Agreement, but challenges remain in terms of limited enabling policy environment or public financial resources leveraging private capital.

China has gained experience in air pollution control, energy transition, green finance, biodiversity conservation, and green transition in energy-intensive industries. Therefore, dialogues between China and other Asian countries in climate policies, energy transition and financing mechanisms are critical since they could improve climate policies and actions in the area, contributing to regional green recovery and climate resilience. The workshop, therefore, invites representatives from intergovernmental organizations, multilateral development financial institutions, think tanks, academia, foundations and social organizations to discuss how to accelerate Asia’s energy transition and green, low-carbon and resilient economic recovery through multilateral and bilateral cooperation.
