Preview of UN Climate Summit | Beijing Energy Network

Event Details

The world is again standing at a very critical point now, so as to build a successful 2015 deal in Paris, to stabilize the GHGs concentration in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system. The Ban Ki-Moon Climate Summit provides a unique opportunity to mobilize global climate support by strengthening political momentum and by engaging civil society and the general public. The international community will be watching closely whether the urgency of climate change could turn into enhanced ambitions expressed in the speeches of our world leaders.

China is by every means a very important player on the road to Paris. And what’s more important is that, as reflected by Chinese President XI Jinping this June, China is making greats efforts to initiate an energy revolution to address multiple domestic problems and to make its contribution towards the Paris deal. Such a revolution will involve greater efforts on energy efficiency and renewable energy development, supported by institutional reform and groundbreaking innovation. All these efforts are conceptually in line with enhanced climate actions in order to keep us in track to a climate secure world.
 
DENG Liangchun is leading WWF China’s works on international climate negotiation and China national low carbon policy development, with the aim of engaging China for a successful 2015 global climate deal and also for China’s green and low carbon development. Beside, Liangchun is also in charge of the analysis and advocacy for China’s revolutionary energy transition towards a clean and low carbon future, particularly working on ambitious renewable energy up-take that is consistent with WWF global vision of 100% renewable energy by 2050. Before joining WWF, Liangchun worked for The Climate Group on regional low carbon pilot in Guangdong Province and prior to that, as an environmental consultant with ENSR/AECOM. Liangchun is an environmental economist by training with a master degree from Peking University.
