Enlightenment of International Experience in the “Green Economy” Transformation for Developing Countries

Conference paper


This chapter explores how developing countries should transform their patterns of economic development at a lower cost to follow the international trend of “green economy” development. By comparing practices among those countries that have already launched their transformation programs, the chapter summarizes some experience available for reference in developing countries. The thesis selects China as a typical model of developing countries, considers China’s developing status at an early stage, and proposes that developing countries should strengthen their science and technology innovation through market functions, regulate the transfer of pollution, and establish balance and supportive frameworks for gender equality.
