Abstract: The Lima Call for Climate Action adopted at the Lima Climate Conference specifies that the principles of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, including the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities, shall apply to the new climate agreement to be adopted at the Paris Climate Conference in 2015. Decisions on other heavily debated items, including the intended nationally determined contributions, were also made at the Lima Climate Conference. The significant achievements in Lima and the positive momentum have laid a solid foundation for the adoption of a new climate agreement at the Paris Climate Conference. Four measures are proposed for China to meet great challenges in addressing climate change beyond 2020, including early formulation and issuance of a climate change law, establishment of a greenhouse gas emission trading scheme, promotion of advanced climate technology investments, and further international engagement for climate change.

Key words: Lima Climate Conference, Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action, greenhouse gas mitigation, climate change negotiation, carbon market, common but differentiated responsibilities
