Climate in the Trump Era: Can China Lead?

Event Details

U.S. President Donald Trump, who once called climate change a Chinese hoax, threatens domestic climate change action in the United States, and the UN Paris Agreement itself. Yet Chinese President Xi Jinping has doubled down on his support for the low-carbon transition, calling the UN climate accord a “hard-won achievement” that “signatories should stick to.” With the US in retreat and Europe divided, can China step up and lead? If so, how might it shape global climate action, and what can it tell us about how China is changing?
