Georgetown’s Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues addresses climate change-related issues and opportunities for cooperation through research, publications, and events that engage faculty, students, and leading stakeholders in both countries.
From spring 2016 to fall 2017, the Research Group on Climate Change, convened by Dr. Joanna Lewis of Georgetown University in collaboration with Dr. Zhang Xiliang of Tsinghua University, brought together a team of experts from the United States and China for a structured dialogue around key academic and policy issues relating to clean energy technology cooperation, climate finance, and climate policy implementation. The research group met three times in Washington and Beijing to advance a shared research agenda and inform relevant stakeholders for better policy and practical cooperation in bilateral and multilateral contexts. Learn more about the group's members and their work in the sections below.
The U.S.-China Energy and Climate Cooperation Working Group, led by Dr. Joanna Lewis, convenes key U.S.-based stakeholders. The group will meet quarterly over the course of the 2018-2019 academic year to share information on ongoing “Track I” activities, opportunities for “Track II” cooperation, and developments in U.S. and Chinese energy and climate policy that influence the bilateral dynamic and wider global agenda. In spring 2019 the group will host a public colloquium on Georgetown’s campus with Chinese participants.
