China’s Green GDP
The conflict between China’s economic development and environmental problems has triggered heated discussions around the world. While Chinese people are enjoying the high-speed railways, condominiums and overpasses, they wear protective masks, use air cleaners, and check PM 2.5 readings everyday. Pollution regulation has become an urgent and pressing task for Chinese government. More and more experts and scholars are calling for exploration into new and promising economic growth areas, as well as promotion of green, circular, low-carbon and energy-efficient development patterns.
In the effort to combat the deteriorating environment in China, we have witnessed the emergence of stricter government policies and the rise of civil society NGOs. What actions has the Chinese government taken so far? What other efficient and feasible measures can we expect from the government? Can NGOs operate the same way in China as they do in western countries? Can they really contribute to environmental change under legal and regulatory uncertainty? What kind of policies could best address the conflict between the environment and the economy? Would China continue to grow at its current rate in a low-carbon economy?

- What are some of the key challenges that the Chinese government and companies face in their combat to environmental pollution?
- How is the Chinese government going to combat the environmental problem?
