Sustainable Development Goals and Climate Policies in Germany and China
At the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit on 25 September 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that includes a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the social, economic and environmental sector that are relevant for all countries. China and Germany both made significant contributions to advance the 2030 Agenda and the agreement on the seventeen SDGs. The SDGs developed into an important reference framework for international cooperation and research collaborations.
This workshop held at College of Environmental Sciences and Engineering at Peking University (PKU CESE) will discuss sustainable development discourses, policies and practices in China and Germany. Academics as well as practitioners will provide insights into research and international cooperation projects related to various SDGs, including energy transition, the management of green transition, urbanization and climate policies.
