STRONGER COOPERATION BETWEEN CHINA AND USA ABOUT ENVIRONMENTAL POLICIES

Recent talks in Beijing have focused on climate and energy related issues. Chinese President has recently met the new White House counselor on climate change and energy policy and US energy secretary as part of the sixth US-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue.

Chinese environmentalists have highlighted the importance of these debates as a significant breakthrough in order to protect and safeguard the environment. The debate has stressed the urgency to undertake a global response to climate change. Additionally, policymakers have shown the need to reinforce communication and international cooperation.

According to experts, there is a good channel of dialogue between the US and China. However, governments should focus on reaching a genuine agreement and concrete actions, especially through environmental cooperation. In this way, experts have argued that a stronger cooperation between these countries could represent a crucial instrument to establish adequate and effective climate and energy policies.

Furthermore, the dialogue between China and US is a strategic measure to foster a globalsustainable development. Climate change, energy and the environment are key elements of the Sino-US strategic dialogue, representing also some of the most challenging issues at the center of the international agenda.

In this framework, experts of the US Natural Resources Defense Council show that both Chinese and US government are strengthening their efforts to cooperate on nuclear safety and clean coal technology.
