CUHK joins International Universities Climate Alliance to promote exchanges on climate research and action

Press Release, SDG13 Climate Action, SDG17 Partnerships for the Goals | 26 May 2022

// The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) is a socially responsible institution committed to climate change research and serving as a test bed for low-carbon innovation, and was the first local university to pledge to become carbon neutral, by 2038.  Recently, CUHK became a member of the International Universities Climate Alliance (IUCA) and will join hands with universities globally to tackle the unprecedented challenge of climate change.

CUHK will collaborate with the IUCA to develop a framework for assessing and modelling effects on climate-sensitive health.  It will enable decision makers, particularly in the health sector and at the national level, to improve their understanding of the potential impact of climate change on health, and make it easier for them to come to decisions on climate preparedness, adaptation, and mitigation in their regions.

Professor Rocky S. Tuan, Vice-Chancellor and President of CUHK said, 'The University is honoured to join the IUCA. Universities are pioneers in creating knowledge and have an essential role in promoting sustainable development. CUHK is at the forefront of climate research, and its researchers are contributing strongly to the climate response both locally and globally.' //
