Mitigation and Adaptation agreement in China

The United Nations Development Programme announced the signing of a "memorandum of understanding" between China and Norway "to support a new project focusing on developing and implementing provincial programmes on climate change mitigation and adaptation."

As the UNDP representative in China described it,
“The project will help in particular the poorest and most vulnerable regions and communities in China to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change through developing and implementing provincial strategies and associated actions and measures.”

Norway has contributed US$2 million to get the project started.
