CEF Director Publishes Chapter on China's Water Challenges in CSIS Report

Dec 19, 2007

CEF Director Jennifer Turner published a chapter on water challenges in China in the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) report "Water and Energy Futures in Urbanized Asia: Sustaining the Tiger." Her chapter discusses the many implications—environmental, social, and political—of China's poor management of resources. Not only is China's water crisis inciting civil unrest, but regional impacts are causing concern among China's neighbors. Turner argues, however, that the many problems arising from pollution and water scarcity may ultimately serve as an impetus for China to improve its environmental governance institutions.
