Abstract：The development of everything is the result of the joint effect of internal and external factors. On the one hand, with the United States withdrawal from the Paris Agreement and its subsequent impact gradually emerging, when global climate governance is in the shadows, China has strengthened its determination to deal with climate change with a series of strong action. Among the expectations of various countries, China has made outstanding efforts to promote the implementation of the Paris agreement through active coordination, cooperation, communication, mediation at the conference at the conference of the parties to the United Nations framework convention on climate change. The demand of the international community for leaders in global climate governance, the current situation of the lack of leadership in global climate governance, and the visible contribution of China have contributed to the external factors for China to lead global climate governance. On the other hand, the concept of “Community with a Shared future for mankind” provides theoretical support for China’s leadership in global climate governance. Guided by the concept of global governance featuring consultation, sharing and co-construction, China adjusts its industrial structure and optimizes its energy structure while striving to develop its economy. It provides a reference for other countries to develop green economy through green, low-carbon and sustainable development, and contributes Chinese wisdom to the process of global governance. The expectations of the international community, the extent of China’s development and its needs have pushed China to the forefront of global climate governance. Opportunities and challenges coexist in leading global climate governance. China is ready to seize the opportunity and meet the challenge, is willing and able to play a leading role in global climate governance.
Key words: Global climate governance, Leadership, A community of Shared future for mankind, Chinese wisdom, Win-Win Cooperation
