Environment and Climate Change Panel

4:20pm | May 5, 2020

Working together to combat climate change

Global climate change has already had tangible effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted, trees are flowering sooner, sea levels are rising, and longer, more intense heat waves are taking place. The future effects of global climate change stand to include more frequent wildfires (as in Australia and Los Angeles), longer periods of drought in certain regions, and an increase in the number, duration and intensity of tropical storms. 

The U.S. and China are the two largest emitters of carbon dioxide, one of the fundamental drivers of climate change. While the U.S. has renounced its role as a global climate leader, China appears to be taking the mantle, particularly when it comes to clean energy innovation. 

In turn, many U.S.-based NGOs are eager to cooperate with their Chinese counterparts and establish joint initiatives. We are here to listen to several of the NGOs at the forefront of U.S.-China collaboration. 

How can China and the U.S. work together to help solve this issue? And what role does technological innovation play in tackling climate change? What unique role do women play in combating climate change and in promoting sustainable resource management?
