Introduction to Volume 3 - The China Environment Yearbook
(1,015 words)

Now in its third volume, The China Environment Yearbook (known as the Green Book of China's Environment in Chinese) has established itself as the standard source on civil society perspectives about environmental issues in China. This new volume brings readers up to date with the main issues and events in 2007. Some of these issues are long-standing, but were pushed to the forefront by new conditions. Other issues are relatively new and indicate some emerging trends. A brief overview of the main issues and their underlying conditions will contextualize the rich materials collected here.
