China Reality Check Series: Controlling Pollution in China

February 22, 2018 • 1:00 – 2:30 pm EST
Please join the Freeman Chair in China Studies for a discussion of pollution control in China. At the December 2017 Central Economic Work Conference, Chinese policymakers decided that China would combat three tough battles in the next three years, among them is controlling pollution. The Wilson Center's Jennifer L. Turner and UCLA's Alex Wang will discuss the implications of China’s targets for reducing major pollutants, major policy developments, implementation, public opinion, and potential changes over the next three years.

The China Reality Check Series presents perspectives from academia, industry, and government in order to promote a sustained dialogue on critical and insufficiently understood issues related to China's reemergence as a global power.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
