C40 works to support Chinese city climate action plans and implementation. As China’s climate paradigm shifted from central government policy change to sub-national implementation, the role of Chinese cities and mayors in ensuring substantial emissions reduction has become increasingly significant. This project will help strengthen city mayors’ political will through a better understanding and demonstration of a new growth model that’s built upon low-carbon policy, designs, and investments. It will also scale up Chinese city climate actions through C40’s network of Chinese and international mayors and their learnings, exchanges, and cooperation. (Substrategy: China National Policy)
