Abstract: China is the world's largest carbon emitter, accounting for 27.5 percent of global carbon emissions in 2018 – twice the amount of the US. While some Western media are quick to admonish China’s supposed inefficient attempts in capping its carbon emissions, China’s emissions per unit of GDP have in fact been slashed by 45.8 percent since 2005. It comes as no surprise considering China’s quiet but ongoing battle against climate change. From innovative 'sponge cities' to withstand rising sea levels, eco-cities to improve quality of life and mandatory waste sorting measures in older cities, China is taking bold steps to prepare its cities for the future. But change is no easy feat. From resistance among citizens facing waste sorting policies, to the challenge of nurturing sustainable lifestyles in eco-cities, this package explores how the world's most populous nation is responding to the change that comes with climate change.
