Center for Environmental Law and Policy Part of Team Helping China Assess Environmental Performance
A team of researchers jointly led by Yale University and Columbia University has released a report that introduces a framework for assessing China’s environmental management and performance. This analysis offers the first independent review of Chinese provincial-level environmental performance by international researchers.
The report – “Towards a China Environmental Performance Index” – introduces a model framework for environmental performance indicators to assist the Chinese government in tracking progress toward policy goals, as well as recommendations for how the Chinese government can apply more aggressive performance metrics to environmental decision-making.
“As the world’s most populous country and second largest economy, China is confronting significant environmental challenges across the board, from air and water quality to natural resource management, waste management, toxics exposure, biodiversity conservation, and greenhouse gas emissions,” said Douglas Kysar, interim director of the Yale Center for Environmental Law and Policy and deputy dean and Joseph M. Field ’55 Professor of Law at Yale Law School.
