Dreams Can Come True:  Some say a dream just came true with the COP21 Paris climate deal over the weekend. US President Obama called the agreement "the best chance we have to save the one planet that we've got." But are we moving fast enough? 

The latest China climate change report signals a bleak future for white Christmases, Winter Olympics and skiing holidays. We mull over these and why Game of Throne's Jon Snow could be wrong - winter is not coming. More can be done for the climate - we will expand on this next month with on-ground takeaways from our team who were in Paris. 

We can do more ... for the holidays, change it up with China Water Risk’s 8 gifts tips that are good for the planet. Also, why not shop wisely? We look at brands to buy over Christmas from fashion & electronics to F&B, on the back of the latest Corporate Information Transparency Index Report.

When holidaying, choose  hotels that are making a 'great leap' for water - International Tourism Partnership’s Fran Hughes expands. Meanwhile, Sophie le Clue of ADM Capital Foundation contemplates something fishy over Christmas. With depleting stocks of some species of fish now close to 60%, know which to pick or avoid. 

In October, two environmental groups became the first NGOs in China to win a lawsuit against polluters on behalf of the public - so dreams can come true!  We want more of this and more data to reflect the real state of China's environment. See why our wish can come true in next year's 13th Five Year Plan.

Happy Holidays from China Water Risk!
