As our London chapter kicks off their annual Climate Series with a Q&A with Isabel Hilton of China Dialogue, we invited climate reporter Karoline Kan to share her thoughts on recent developments in China-U.S. climate cooperation and China’s climate policy.
Sam and Karoline talk about the Leaders Summit on Climate, cooperation versus competition, and China’s 14th Five-Year-Plan and carbon market.
Karoline Kan is a longtime climate journalist and author of Under Red Skies, a memoir of China’s changing society through the eyes of her family. She is the 2019 winner of our Young China Watcher of the Year Award.
