Beyond a Tipping Point? China's Climate Policy and the Paris Summit

26 February 2016
Leuven, Belgium

This workshop with Prof. Dr. Qui Ye discusses China’s international and domestic climate policies in the run-up to and aftermath of the 2015 Paris summit.

It aims to answer the question whether China has passed a “tipping point” in its committment to climate action, having played a crucial role in reaching the Paris Agreement. While China might achieve its target to peak CO2 emissions only by 2030, the countrie's investments in non-fossil fuel energy sources might already be a game changer.

The workshop is convened by the Brookings-Tsinghua Centre for Public Policy and the University of Leuven (Belgium).
