Assistant Professor, Tsinghua University Department of Earth System Science

Abstract:

In September 2020, China’s government announced that China would strive to peak its CO2 emissions by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060. This ambitious goal not only provides a future direction for high-level socio-economic development but also sheds new lights on synergizing air pollution control and GHG emission reduction. This seminar will talk the synergy between tackling climate change and combating air pollution in different aspects such as physical mechanisms, objectives and metrics, control measures, benefits, and progress. Identify the emerging challenges toward the synergetic governance, and help the policy makers to design a synergetic roadmap of Carbon Neutrality and Clean Air for China.
