Taiwan is a state and is often considered to be a part of mainland China, therefore Taiwan has not been very active with their own agenda on the fight against climate change, choosing to adopt mainland China’s approaches to the issue. There is much debate over whether Taiwan is to be considered an independent nation or a state of the People’s Republic of China. They have neither signed nor ratified the Paris Climate Agreement. Since Taiwan is an island, they are prone to typhoons, earthquakes, flooding, landslides, and much more.
