9781138831117: Routledge Handbook of Environmental Policy in China (Routledge International Handbooks)

During the last few decades, China has accomplished unprecedented economic growth and has emerged as the second largest economy in the world. This ‘economic miracle’ has led hundreds of millions of people out of poverty, but has also come at a high cost. Environmental degradation and the impact of environmental pollution on health are nowadays issues of the greatest concern for the Chinese public and the government.

The Routledge Handbook of Environmental Policy in China focuses on the environmental challenges of China’s rapidly growing economy and provides a comprehensive overview of the policies developed to address the environmental crisis. Leading international scholars and practitioners examine China’s environmental governance efforts from an interdisciplinary perspective. Divided into five parts, the handbook covers the following key issues:

  • Part I: Development of Environmental Policy in China - Actors and Institutions
  • Part II: Key issues and Strategies for Solution
  • Part III: Policy Instruments and Enforcement
  • Part IV: Related Policy Fields – Conflicts and Synergies
  • Part V: China’s Environmental Policy in the International Context

This comprehensive handbook will be an invaluable resource to students and scholars of environmental policy and politics, development studies, Chinese studies, geography and international relations.

Review:

"Understanding China's environmental challenges is critical to understanding China. This handbook offers a comprehensive guide, both to the gravity of the air, water, soil, bio-diversity and other crises, and to the current policy initiatives that seek to address them. Essential reading on a subject of global importance." – Isabel Hilton, Founder and CEO, www.chinadialogue.net, UK

"The Routledge Handbook of Environmental Policy in China brings together a collection of experts from around the world. Their essays delve into the evolution of the state of the environment in China today as well as the country’s role in global environmental policy. This book is more than just a great handbook - it is a significant scholarly work as well as a solid reference volume." – Richard Louis Edmonds, Former Editor of The China Quarterly, France

"For anyone who wants to be brought up-to-date on the dramatic environmental, climate, and sustainability policies and programs in China, the initiatives of Chinese leadership to create an ecological civilization and the progress and challenges in program implementation, this book is a must read. This is an excellent collection of contributions addressing China’s increasingly ambitious environmental agenda." – Miranda Schreurs, Professor of Environment and Climate Policy, Bavarian School of Public Policy on the Technical University of Munich, Germany
