China on Friday handed in a progress report on implementing its nationally determined contributions (NDCs) targets to the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, according to the Ministry of Ecology and Environment.

The document, titled "Progress on the Implementation of China's Nationally Determined Contributions (2022)," has shown the country's progress since it updated its NDCs in 2020, reflecting its determination and efforts to promote green and low-carbon development and address global climate change, said the ministry.

The report summarized China's new arrangements and measures since the NDC update, with a focus on the top-level design to address climate change, as well as the progress made in controlling greenhouse gas emissions in key areas such as industry, urban and rural construction, transportation and agriculture.

It summed up China's achievements in areas like green and low-carbon transformation of energy, consolidation and enhancement of carbon sinks in ecosystems, carbon market development, and adaptation to climate change.

The document also involved the progress of the Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions in addressing climate change, said the ministry.
