Policy Press

With the increasingly central role of China very much in mind, this book aims to assess how China's longstanding concerns about international fairness and justice can be squared against the pressing need for an effective international regime and effective domestic policies that limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This chapter lays a foundation for the chapters that follow. It begins by describing very briefly some of the science and international diplomacy of climate change, before summarising some key aspects of Chinese climate policy and providing some possible explanations for that policy.

Keywords:   climate diplomacy, China, Chinese climate policy, climate change, GHG emissions
