Tsinghua University Institute of Climate Change and Sustainable Development (ICCSD) was founded in October 2017. Mr. XIE Zhenhua, China's Special Representative for Climate Change Affairs, serves as the inaugural president. ICCSD is committed to building a collaborative platform for strategy and policy research, talent cultivation, international dialogue, bridging the gap between academic research and policy, and providing support and solutions related to climate change and sustainable development. Through three years of development, ICCSD has accomplished two flagship research projects - Strategy and Pathway of Low-carbon Transition in China and Synergizing Actions on the Environment and Climate. Also, ICCSD has established the Methane Emission Reduction Cooperation Platform and Nature-based Solution Cooperation Platform to foster broader collaboration and knowledge sharing. The Institute has also launched extensive bilateral and multilateral dialogues, including "Climate Change Global Lectures" and "Friends of the Paris Agreement"; and provided full support for "Global Alliance of Universities on Climate" and held two South-South cooperation climate training programs.
