China: The Impact of Climate Change to 2030: Geopolitical Implications   [open pdf - 527KB]

"The National Intelligence Council-sponsored workshop entitled Implications of Global Climate Change in China on 3 April 2009 brought together a panel of experts to consider the probable effects of climate change on China from a social, political, and economic perspective. The panelists judged that China has a robust capacity to handle the large-scale disruptions that probably will be caused by climate change and that China's trajectory of continued growth is likely to further increase its resilience through 2030. Beyond 2030 the ability for the state to respond is more problematic."
