Adapting to Climate Change in China: Animation


This seven-minute video, premiered at COP21 and now available online, describes how China has been working to understand and respond to climatic risk. Over recent decades climate risks have been changing rapidly for different groups of people and sectors – posing a significant challenge for China’s policy makers.

This animation is based on the book, Climate Risk and Resilience, edited by Rebecca Nadin, Sarah Opitz-Stapleton and Xu Yinlong and published by Routledge this year. Using research from a wide range of Chinese sources and the Adapting to Climate Change in China project, a research-to-policy project, the book provides a fascinating glimpse into how China has been working to understand and respond to climatic risk.
