Taiwan and EU Strategies Against Climate Change – Main Topics for International Education


The 6th report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) presents detailed knowledge about climate change and calls for more immediate actions to reduce risk and increase resilience. We provide an overview of the climate adaptation and mitigation strategy of Taiwan and the European Union (EU) including the general framework, individual programs, their achievements and concerns. In Taiwan, the government introduced the National Climate Change Adaptation Policy Guidelines and the Taiwan Climate Change Projection Information and Adaptation Knowledge Platform (TCCIP) to implement and research adaptation solutions. Climate action is at the heart of the European Green Deal which is an ambitious package of measures to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions, investing massively in research and innovation. Starting with the new Commission in 2019, the EU developed a massive wave of new initiatives for climate actions. One of these actions is the European Climate Law with a legally binding target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. In the discussion, we also examine the challenges of public visibility and media attention on climate issues. As numerous scientific findings were presented to the world community, now all eyes are directed to COP 27 held in Egypt. As the pandemic absorbed much of the workforces of governments in Europe as well as in Asia, we ask: How are Taiwan and the EU dealing with this?
