With China’s economy and infrastructural development exploding, the world urgently needs avenues for a sustainable approach to its growth. Here Paul G. Harris explores these avenues, using Hong Kong as a case study to introduce the major concepts in sustainable development for China. Sketching out the historical and political contexts for China’s environmental policymaking, he analyzes key challenges related to the country’s development, including air pollution, water quality, waste, transport, and climate change. Geared toward undergraduates and the young people who will be instrumental in managing China’s growth, it provides a fundamental outlook on how China can achieve its goals in environmentally friendly ways.

About the Author:

Paul G. Harris is the Chair Professor of Global and Environmental Studies at the Education University of Hong Kong. He is the author and editor of many books, including China's Responsibility for Climate Change, also published by the Policy Press.

Review:

"Rich communities still struggle between development and environment--Hong Kong's story provides an example of how Chinese cities may evolve. Professor Harris gives us a thorough analysis of the challenge of achieving sustainability."

--Christine Loh, CEO, Civic Exchange, Hong Kong (03/08/2012)
