While the majority of people are aware of the pollution hovering atop China’s eastern coast and throughout their waterways, they are largely unaware of the policies and implementation efforts of the Chinese government to reign in these threats. Several plans have been enacted by the Chinese government to curb pollution, and these policies have been analyzed herein. The history of environmental protection in China is outlined, followed by the evolution of Chinese environmental law. An analysis of China’s major environmental laws is conducted, and the main challenges to effective law are introduced.
