Product Overview

"The UN Climate Conference in Copenhagen made clear that the fate of the planet rests in large part on the environmental policies of two superpowers: China and the United States. This volume could nut be more timely with its analysis and comparison of environmental policy in China and the United States."-Carlos Davidson, San Francisco State University

"The strength of this hook lies in the contributors' shared and genuine attempt to explore the potential of mutual learning in environmental protection between the United States and China. The comparative case studies included in the volume are coherent as a whole, and highly relevant to the field of environmental politics individually."-Fengshi Wu. Chinese University of Hong Kong

China is a multiethnic country with a vast territory, a land of diverse ecosystems. With the drive for industrialization in China and the implementation of a "western grand development" strategy in western regions, both governments and people face great challenges in environmental protection and sustainable use of biodiversity resources as a result of growing interaction between human activities and the natural environment. To meet the challenges, governments in these regions need to adopt a series of important policy measures not only to reduce industrial emissions hut also to return farmland to forests and pasture to grasslands and to implement measures of ecological migration to reduce human activities in ecological conservation areas. In this regard, China must not only learn profound lessons from industrialized countries but also search fix international cooperation. The United States provides some good comparative case studies on environmental protection, grassroots environmental management, and conservation policies in western regions. This book attempts to address key questions about Chinese and U.S. environmental policies by looking at the historical development of environmental protection and the current environmental policies in the western regions of the two countries.
