China is the world’s leading emitter of heat-trapping gases by a wide margin. Its policies for limiting emissions will have a significant impact on the global climate for decades to come.
This Guide to Chinese Climate Policy provides information on China’s emissions, the impacts of climate change in China, the history of China’s climate change policies and China’s response to climate change today.
The Guide to Chinese Climate Change Policy 2022 is an important resource for anyone interested in climate change, China or both. This deeply-researched book provides detailed information on China’s greenhouse gas emissions, energy policies, climate diplomacy and more. I recommend it to policymakers, experts and anyone interested in these important issues.
