The project Adapting to Climate Change in China (ACCC) is an innovative policy research initiative focusing on linking climate change research with policy making and development. ACCC started in June 2009 as a collaboration between UK, China and Switzerland; it is funded by DFID China, the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation, DFID Research and the UK Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC). ACCC is building on the results of a long standing collaboration between UK and China in the area of climate change adaptation. The main national institutional partner is the Chinese National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) which is responsible for the formulation of Five Year National development plans and has also the mandate to coordinate climate change actions both in adaptation and mitigation.
