Abstract

China's environmental and climate-change-related risk provides serious challenges to its development as they carry actual and potential social and economic implications for the livelihood of its population. Among the various environmental risks China faces, pollution in its various forms, drought and flooding, water scarcity, and sea-level rise are some of the more challenging ones. This variety of environmental issues highlights the complexity of addressing and managing these challenges, not least since China's growth strategy has the potential to exacerbate the negative impact on the environment, even when protecting the environment is a specific topic of the 13th Five Year Plan (2016-2020). China's environmental and climate-change-related challenge also carries regional and global implications by facilitating the global climate change dynamic as well as increasing the negative impact on the regional environment in northeast Asia. Even so, it would be misleading to identify China as the major source of global climate change.
