Participants celebrated 30 years of the China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development, with many noting its successes as a science-policy interface as well as the challenges the CCICED faces as it continues its work
2022 marks the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development (CCICED). Participants from around the world convened for the CCICED’s 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM), at which this milestone will be commemorated. The 2022 CCICED AGM and the CCICED 30th anniversary celebration took place under the theme of “Building an Inclusive, Green and Low-carbon Economy.”
CCICED is a high-level international advisory body comprising members and experts from government, businesses, international organizations, research institutions, and social organizations from China and abroad. CCICED’s main tasks are to study critical environment and development issues facing China and to provide policy recommendations to the Chinese government. By providing a platform for international exchange on sustainable development, the Council seeks to “enable the international community to understand China, and support
China’s engagement in the world.” CCICED pursues this aim by carrying out comprehensive, cross-sectoral, and multidisciplinary research that integrates environmental, economic, and social concerns and draws on advanced international concepts, policies, technologies, and best practices, with the aim of advancing ecological civilization and sustainable development.
The 2022 AGM convened from 13 to 16 June 2022 both in person and online due to COVID-19. It included a closed-door Executive Meeting, as well as plenary sessions, open forum sessions, and a policy studies’ release session.
