In the third publication from the Griffith-Lowy Institute Project on the Future of China, Roger Irvine analyses the critical relationship between China's rapid economic development and climate change and the policy steps Beijing has taken to address these critical issues. As the world focuses on climate change talks in Copenhagen, it is crucial that we have a better understanding of China’s position on global responses to climate change and their roots in China’s own development.
