Global Climate Adaptation Partnership (GCAP)

Building connections in China


The Joint US-China Collaboration on Clean Energy (JUCCCE) in partnership with the National Academy for Mayors in China (NAMC) has trained over 450 mayors, central government officials, and state owned enterprise executives on how to build sustainable cities. The latest topic on their curriculum will be climate adaptation which is being developed with support from GCAP. This will highlight the risks that extreme events and long-term conditions could pose for Chinese urban areas. It will enable mayors to develop an action roadmap tailored to their urban area that will build resilience to climate change.

This a one element of a broader training programme over five years that engages with a coalition of volunteers and organizations to help visualize, brand, and activate the ‘China Dream’ around four major drivers affecting energy use in China: the grid, industry, urbanisation and consumption. Key to this is broadening the conversations around sustainability by building global connections between these experts and people in other fields, including advertising, movie production, or marketing.
