"Climate change is affecting every corner of our planet. It is amplifying the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events, including heat waves, rainfall, droughts and storms," said Alisjahbana

"Our region has already experienced the severe consequences of these climate-induced phenomena," said Alisjahbana.

"China has demonstrated effective policies and technologies for transforming deserts into forests, restoring wetlands and making cities greener. These valuable experiences and resources should be shared and leveraged to support other countries and their pursuit of net-zero objectives," added Alisjahbana.
