The Adapting to Climate Change in China project is designed to develop and share internationally China’s experience of integrating climate change adaptation into the development process, in order to reduce China and other countries’ vulnerability to climate change.
The ACCC Project is a UK-Chinese-Swiss collaboration, building on a longstanding partnership on tackling climate impacts, which began between China and the UK in 2001.
The project aims to improve global knowledge on the assessment of climate impacts and risks, develop practical approaches to climate change adaptation and share the experience with other countries of China’s enhanced resilience to the impacts of climate change through integrated development and adaptation policies.
The cooperating departments are:
- UK Department for International Development (Dfid Research, Dfid China)
- Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC)
- China’s National Development Reform Commission (NDRC)
- UK Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC)
