TAIPEI, Taiwan — Taiwan will continue its efforts on climate change despite the U.S. decision to withdraw from the Paris Accord, a spokesman from the Presidential Office said Friday.
U.S. President Donald Trump announced on Thursday that the U.S. will withdraw from the accord.
Alex Huang (黃重諺) said although Taiwan is not a signatory to related agreements on climate change, the government and private groups have conscientiously taken part in United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) activities.
Taiwan has also worked hard to achieve international targets for carbon emission reduction, he said.
“Taiwan’s efforts will not change as a result of U.S. withdrawal (from the Paris Accord),” he said. [FULL STORY]
