The Stanford King Center on Global Development and the Stanford Center on China's Economy and Institutions (SCCEI) present a special event on the potential for China and U.S. collaboration on climate change.
China and the U.S. are critical for global action on climate change. Together, the two countries created up to 40 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions in 2019, and both countries have significant global influence. This event highlights several important challenges for climate action at the start of the Biden Administration. How can China-U.S. cooperation on climate be revived in light of the current bilateral relationship, in particular for fostering innovations in both technologies and policies for mitigating climate change?
The special event will feature Steven Chu, William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Physics and professor of molecular & cellular physiology in the medical school at Stanford University, and will be moderated by Gretchen C. Daily, Bing Professor of Environmental Science and co-founder and faculty director of the Natural Capital Project at Stanford University.
Following the event, SCCEI and the King Center will host a virtual reception for audience members to continue the conversation.
