China focus: nature-based solutions to climate change

China is arguably the most important country to addressing climate change. Its efforts at increasing low carbon technology and energy reductions targets are well known, yet China contains a less-often discussed feature that will help it both mitigate and adapt to a changing climate; its tremendously diverse ecosystems. In the face of unparalleled economic growth these ecosystems are increasingly vulnerable. At the same time, the existence of such a diverse ecological base means there is great potential to implement nature-based solutions for addressing climate change in China.
