The last nine months have seen statements signalling an intention to increase the climate mitigation plans of China, the EU and the United States. This has already had an impact on other countries such as Japan and South Korea, who have proposed more rapid cuts in their domestic greenhouse gas emissions.
This session discusses the climate relationship between China, the EU, UK and US, the domestic challenges they face and the responsibility that they collectively have for the outcome of COP26.
This event is co-hosted by Chatham House and The Lau China Institute at King’s College London as part of London Climate Action Week 2021.
It launches Chatham House’s recent paper China, EU and US cooperation on climate and energy under a joint Chatham House-RUSI project which examines transatlantic approaches and responses to China through the lens of four key themes; digital technology, trade and investment, governance of global commons, climate change and the environment.
