Chapter 4: Chinas climate change policy and international policy promotion

Olivia Gippner


The bureaucratic set up of climate policy-making in China has been informed by a variety of stakeholders, weaving an intricate web of interests, political and scientific considerations. The chapter provides a comprehensive overview of each organization’s interests, organizational essence, resources and areas of control, access to the highest decision-making centres and what strategies are used to maintain or expand their turfs. But also non-state actors and the public can act as influences on climate policy-making. After reflecting on relations between the Chinese Communist Party and bureaucratic politics, the chapter concludes by relating the Chinese domestic climate network to external actors and identifying potential channels of influence.
