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.
