China, U.S. to increase climate cooperation

Part of: Prelims and GS-III – Climate change

Context The world’s top carbon polluters, China and the United States, have agreed to increase their cooperation and speed up action to rein in climate-damaging emissions, signalling a mutual effort on global warming.

Key takeaways 

  • The two countries would work together to accelerate the emissions reductions required to meet the goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change.
  • China also agreed for the first time to crack down on methane leaks. 
  • Both countries have agreed to share technology to reduce emissions. 
  • During Paris Agreement also Governments had agreed to jointly cut greenhouse gas emissions enough to keep the global temperature rise “well below” 2 degrees Celsius since pre-industrial times, with a more stringent target of trying to keep warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius preferred.
