The white paper was unveiled in the lead-up to the COP 26 United Nations Climate Conference, which is to be held at the beginning of November in Glasgow, the United Kingdom.

Ye Min, vice-minister of ecology and environment, said that China looks forward to seeing COP 26 send out a strong political signal of firmly adhering to multilateralism and respecting multilateral rules.

China hopes that the parties involved can conclude negotiations on regulations related to the 2015 Paris Agreement on market-based climate change mitigation mechanisms, he said.

Apart from progress on developed nations' support for poor countries in funding, technology and capacity building, China hopes to see "implementation" prioritized at the conference, he said.

Parties should "transform targets into policies, measures and concrete actions". They should avoid shouting empty slogans about coming up with targets or lifting targets, he said.
