US and China energy and climate policy and the G20

Climate and energy policy is once more near the top of the US government’s policy agenda, and occupies a prominent position in China’s development planning and policy. Both countries strive for global leadership on clean energy technologies, and both are preparing national pledges to reduce or constrain their carbon emissions for the period after 2020. The active pursuit of this policy agenda has implications for the strategic relationship of the world’s superpowers, and for the G20 agenda.In this public forum, speakers will discuss China’s climate, energy and urbanisation policies, the US administration’s latest energy and climate policy announcements, both countries’ positions going into the post-2020 UN climate negotiations, and strategic implications. The forum comes just ahead of the Australian C20 (or ‘Civil Society 20’) meetings, and will discuss implications for the G20 agenda.The forum features:Dr Fuqiang Yang is a senior adviser at the US Natural Resources Defense Council on climate change, energy and environment.
