I think there is a lot of scope for cooperation, and I hope in the next few weeks with the IMF and World Bank meetings, with the meeting that President Biden has called and so forth, that the opportunity for cooperation will come to the forefront."

Storyline


The international community must work together to address common challenges including climate change and infectious diseases, said experts on Tuesday.
Speaking in an interview with China Global Television Network (CGTN), Jeffrey Sachs, director of Columbia University’s Center for Sustainable Development, pointed out there are many areas such as climate change where China and the United States can cooperate.

"I think analyzing the ways forward together, proposing expanded models for multilateral development bank financing of the transition around the world, helping to recapitalize these banks with more lending power, these are very practical areas where the U.S. and China should be working together. I think there is a lot of scope for cooperation, and I hope in the next few weeks with the IMF and World Bank meetings, with the meeting that President Biden has called and so forth, that the opportunity for cooperation will come to the forefront," he said.

Sachs added that he is optimistic about China realizing its goal of carbon neutrality ahead of schedule.

"I believe that China will decarbonize well before 2060, because China does everything very fast and very effectively, and I think 2050 will prove to be an absolutely manageable target," he noted.

The international community should learn from the current pandemic that the world must unite as one to tackle major challenges, said Bob Ward, policy and communications director of the London School of Economics and Political Science’s Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment.

"If there's one thing we should have learned from the pandemic is that our futures are all interconnected and that the only way forward is through cooperation. You cannot have a world in which there is prosperity and well-being for everyone by trying to close yourself off. There has to be this cooperation in order for us all to make progress. And I think that climate change, infectious disease, and biodiversity loss are huge global challenges, and we all have to work together. I would hope that the governments of the United States, of China, of Europe, of all governments understand that we have to work together to tackle these because as the pandemic has shown, if one country is not safe then we're all exposed to the same risk," he said.
