We welcome the launch of GCA China and look forward to working closely together to scale up action and find new solutions to the climate crisis. We need a new way of thinking about adaptation that is bold, politically ambitious and taps into the ideas and resources from both the public and the private sector. We need to take a more proactive, systems-based approach to long term planning for how we manage natural environments, build cities and feed growing populations. The GCA can help achieve this.
