The China Climate Change Partnership Framework (CCPF) brings together the work of nine UN Agencies in close coordination and partnership with their ten government counterparts. It is the first Joint Programme of its kind on climate change in China and was the only programme under the Spanish MDG Achievement Fund which was granted the maximum possible funding allocation.
Within the Framework, there are some exceptional opportunities for the UN, the international community and China to work together to deliver outcomes of truly global significance. The Framework, for example, responds to China’s request for support as it develops its position for the post-Kyoto negotiations. It will establish a new Climate Change Centre in Beijing as a vital means of forming policy both in China and beyond.
The CCPF engages both the public and private sectors and makes use of existing best practice from which it aims to develop innovative models and pilot projects, as requested by our Chinese partners with a view to scaling-up in the future. It supports policies needed to achieve climate change goals and to develop and disseminate strategic, innovative and highly cost effective partnerships and technology transfer models.
ILO is implementing the programme in three major areas:
- With regard to climate change policy, the Framework addresses the need for specific and actionable content to support the current policy framework. Specifically, ILO activities include mainstreaming low carbon approaches into business development and partnerships by developing an entrepreneurship training module to explore green business opportunities and solve the challenges relating to climate changes;
- The mitigation component addresses energy efficient technologies. Specifically, ILO activities include technical support on occupational safety and health assessment to the production of coal gangue bricks and dissemination of heat recovering and energy co-generation technology; and
- In the adaptation component of the Framework, ILO addresses employment by carrying out assessments on the relationship between low carbon development and employment promotion in China, and developing policy recommendations.
