Potentials for China - Philippine Cooperation on Climate Action
A summary of the 139-page white paper prepared by Laurence Delina
Unabated, climate disruptions continue to manifest through extreme weather events such as super typhoons, prolonged drought conditions, and abnormal precipitation patterns, as well as sea level rise and ecosystem disturbances, directly impacting human and non-human lives, communities, and ecosystems. China and the Philippines are not spared of these ongoing changes. The vulnerabilities to climate impacts of their communities, both coastal and inland, are projected to be among the most severe.
