BEIJING, January 8, Chinadaily -- Pilot program shows that China's policymakers are eager to understand the links between the financial sector and low-carbon development

When the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change concluded in Katowice, Poland, on Dec 14, the world was awaiting signs of hope that the climate change challenge could be met. The encouraging 200-country deal notwithstanding, some reports show that not enough is being done to limit the global temperature increase to 2 degree centigrade, which experts consider necessary to prevent the worst effects of dangerous climate change. In addition, the Donald Trump administration in the United States has rejected climate science and wants to blow off the Paris Climate Agreement, threatening to undermine the international cooperation that is critical to addressing one of the 21st century's most urgent and complex global problems.

Other countries (and US subnational actors), however, have not given up. Policymakers, researchers, and advocacy organizations around the world are pressing forward with the design and implementation of new climate solutions. One of the most promising of which is green finance - the effort to ensure that public and private investments in financial assets are both profitable and environmentally friendly.
