Research Group: Climate Change

Over the past decade, climate change has emerged as a central issue on the global agenda and in U.S.-China relations.

In 2016 and 2017 Dr. Joanna Lewis of Georgetown University and Dr. Zhang Xiliang of Tsinghua University convened a group 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 collaboration has generated joint working papers and continuing research projects.
