Environmental Governance in Green Development
Environmental issue is a major issue related to the national and regional sustainable development. Ever since China’s adopting Reform and Opening-up, China’s economy has got sustainable and rapid growth; industrialization and urbanization has enjoyed constant acceleration; comprehensive national power has been significantly advanced; people’s material life has been generally improved. However, with the rapid economic growth, environmental problems become increasingly serious, which has apparently hampered China’s sustainable developments of economy and society. During the period of the 11th Five-Year Plan, China’s central government focused on building up resource-saving and environment-friendly society and accelerated the transformation of economic development. As a result, environmental governance has been constantly strengthened; the task of pollution reduction has been finished ahead of schedule; the task of environmental pollution control has made progress in the phased sense.
