China to unveil climate plan next month

China will unveil its national plan to tackle global warming next month, including concrete measures to cut carbon dioxide emissions, Reuters reported a top climate change official as saying on Thursday.

Gao Guangsheng, head of the Office of the National Coordination Committee for Climate Change, said the plan, to be announced on April 24, would include policies for cutting back greenhouse gases but declined to comment on whether it would give an overall national target.

 "We will make clear what policies and (in) what areas we plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions," Gao told the Renewable Energy Finance Forum in Beijing.
