Synopsis

China is becoming a rising star in global economical and political affairs. Both internationally and within China itself, people have great expectations of its future role. This book aims to clarify many aspects of China's key position in the climate change situation and policy debates. However, limited by its development stage, natural resource endowment, and other unbalanced developing issues, China is still a developing country. This book shows the reader the real China, which can provide more comprehensive solutions for future global climate regimes. This book includes research into China's twelfth Five-Year-Plan; low-carbon city pilot schemes; policies and pathways for China's nationally appropriate mitigation actions; China's forestry management; China's NGOs and climate change; the low-carbon 2010 Expo in Shanghai; carbon budget proposals; China's green economy and green jobs; China's reaction to carbon tariffs; China's actions in approaching adaptation; China's cumulative carbon emissions, and more.

China's Climate Change Policies brings together experienced experts with in-depth understanding of the scientific assessment of climate change and relevant social and economic policies, and senior experts who have participated directly in international climate negotiations. This will help the reader to better understand the 2011 Durban climate change conference, as well as China's long-term strategy in response to climate change.
