China Low Carbon Platform

China is home to a quarter of the entire world population and is a global economic player. It has rapidly increasing greenhouse gas emissions that are contributing to climate change. China has national plans for developing a low carbon economy, for promoting renewable energy and tackling climate change. The country also has a long experience of using renewable energy such as micro-hydropower, wind and solar energy at the community level for rural electrification. China's efforts should be supported through increased international cooperation and knowledge-sharing.
