As the world faces an uneven bumpy recovery over COVID-19 PANDEMIC, amid geopolitical uncertainties, China and South Korea have been steadily taking joint climate action. Both countries have ambitious short-term and long-term carbon emission goals, accelerating the shift away from their coal-reliant economies. Earlier, Tian Wei sat down with former South Korean Prime Minister Han Seung-soo, to see how the neighboring nations managed to band together on climate change, pandemic response and multilateralism. Besides serving as South Korean prime minister from 2008 to 2009, he was president of the UN General Assembly from 2001 to 2002. He also served as UN special envoy on climate change.
