PKU - Climate Change and Sustainable Development
3-28 July 2023
Hosted by Peking University
It is increasingly recognized that climate change is intricately linked to sustainable development, not just in terms of joint underlying drivers, but also with respect to synergistic policy choices. Well-designed climate change mitigation policy can lead to significant co-benefits for sustainable development in air pollution control, energy security enhancement and resource efficiency improvement. To effectively inform decision making on these issues, whether at the national or international level, science must take an integrated and holistic perspective. The course aims to give an overview on the latest scientific consensus on climate change, climate impacts, climate change adaptation and mitigation, and the nexus between climate change mitigation and sustainable development goals such as high-quality economic growth, energy security, food security, air pollution control and human health improvement. Furthermore, it will briefly introduce how the complicated nexus could be understood and uncovered from system analysis perspectives.
