Every September, the World Economic Forum (WEF) organizes the Sustainable Development Impact Meetings alongside the UN General Assembly Meeting in New York. In the context of this year’s meetings, on 27-28 September, the WEF office in Beijing organized a series of sessions with a focus on China.
On 27 September, DCZ expert Eva Sternfeld was invited to join other Chinese and German experts to comment on an intended scoping study entitled “Integrated land-use for synergizing biodiversity targets, dual carbon goals and food security in China”.
