Strategies for sustainable urban development: towards green(er) Chinese cities?

Abstract : In the face of more and more environmental pollution and the rapid pace of urbanisation, sustainable urban development has become an increasingly important issue for China. As the country aims to bring urbanisation levels up to 70% by 2035, the way its cities develop and the control of resources consumed for growing urban activity are of paramount importance.

The different dimensions of environmental management in sustainable urban development policies still encounter important obstacles in their implementation.
