The chapter focuses on the climate policy of China. Chinese climate policies are linked to its economic policy, particularly its energy policy. The three main determinants that are decisive for China’s climate change policy include economy, energy, and perceived vulnerability. It studies the role and influence of the main institutions involved in China’s climate-change policy. The role of China in international negotiations is examined, and the implementation of direct climate policies through the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) by China is discussed. The chapter concludes by presenting a future perspective on China’s climate policy.

Keywords:   China, climate policy, Clean Development Mechanism, energy policy, international negotiations, economic policy
