China’s Pollution: The Costs, Challenges, and Steps Forward

Day-long symposium presented by the University of Chicago’s Center for International Studies, Energy Policy Institute at Chicago, and Paulson Institute.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided. 

About the Event: More than three decades of rapid economic growth in China have lifted hundreds of millions out of poverty but also led to severe environmental degradation. Faced with “airpocalypse” conditions in major cities and widespread environmental destruction, which not only impair public health but also threatens social stability, the government has launched a war on pollution. This one-day interdisciplinary symposium brings together leading scholars to examine the human and economic costs of China’s environmental crisis, policies and campaigns underway to tackle the challenge, and steps China can take going forward. The symposium will enable participants to take stock of the current state of research on China’s environment, and examine challenges and innovations in environmental governance.
