Striving for Ecological Advancement

China Today by Fan Xing,December 27, 2017 Adjust font size:

Working towards Future Goals

As the biggest developing country in the world, China shoulders multiple responsibilities including growing its economy, eliminating poverty, improving people’s livelihood, protecting the environment, and tackling climate change, to name a few. There is still a lot to do to refine its environmental governance system and improve the environment to satisfy people’s expectations. China is striving to enhance its ecological progress by putting increasing efforts in pollution control and environmental improvement.

Resolving environmental issues ultimately relies on development. Pollution prevention and control requires further adjustment of the industrial structure, improving the energy mix, and promoting energy saving and energy efficiency among many others. Environmental protection actions have been included in China’s economic and social development plans and are phased in in different areas and industries. The country will carry out a string of policies to stimulate the use of renewable energy, increase forest carbon sink, launch pilot projects of pollution control, and develop technologies aiming to improve energy saving and environmental protection.

Endeavoring to innovate on its development path, China vows to integrate ecological progress into the transformation of its development model, industrial upgrading, economic structural adjustment as well as other key strategies, so as to maximize positive and desirable outcomes in the fields of nature, economy, and society, creating a good working and living environment for its people, and playing its part in ensuring global ecological security.

Fan Xing is an assistant researcher at the National Center for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation.
