Beijing, 10 November 2021 (TDI): The State Council of China introduced a framework to deal with the effects of climate change; control pollution, and protect the ecological environment.
The framework defines a series of objectives up till 2035. The aim is to steadily improve the ecological environment and decrease the cumulative release of primary pollutants.
Carbon emission Reduction
China strives to reduce carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP up to 18 percent till 2025. The concentration of PM2.5 will be reduced by 10%. The number of days with good air quality will reach 87.5%. The target is to reduce densely polluted weather and urban black-odor water bodies. The hazards of soil pollution will dramatically diminish.
Fine Particular Matter
PM2.5 or fine particular matter is an air pollutant. If the level of PM2.5 increases in the air, it becomes hazardous for human health. The tiny particles of PM2.5 reduce the visibility and cause a hazy atmosphere.
Green Production and Lifestyles
China is diligently working to adopt green production and lifestyles on an individual level by 2035. By sticking to the framework China will successfully achieve a carbon peak and centrally improved ecological conditions. Carbon peak is a phenomenon where greenhouse gas emission emissions will decrease progressively every year.
Framework Rolled Out by the CSC
The framework rolled out by the State Council of China calls for accelerated green and low-carbon development. This will happen by transitioning to clean energy. Furthermore, it is imperative as per the guidelines of the framework to control unplanned and careless development of high-energy-consuming and high-emission schemes.
Climate Change in China
China is majorly affected by the climate change phenomena, economically, socially, and environmentally. Over the years China has efficiently embraced green technologies to tackle air pollution. Air pollution has become a serious problem for many cities. climate change is not only affecting human health; it is adversely affecting the environment as well as the economy.
