Abstract: "China’s rapid growth is inevitably leading to urgent environmental challenges. Environmental costs
may account for 10 per cent of China's GDP and the effects of pollution, desertification and climate
change are beginning to be felt within China and outside her borders. Climate change, species loss,
pollution, water scarcity and environment damage are not problems confined to one country: they are
challenges that concern all the world's citizens, but the rise of China gives them a new urgency.
Tackling these challenges will require a common effort and common understanding."
