Author(s)Mei Gechlik
First Page227
AbstractThis Article takes a closer look at the case of China to fill the gap. It draws on numerous sources including Chinese laws and regulations, the country's policies on climate change, the country's technological capabilities and business environment, observations made by CDM specialists, and other studies of CDM projects. Such a comprehensive discussion, together with Dechezleprete et al.'s findings, will present a more complete picture of what actually drives the transfer of clean technologies to China and will, therefore, help design an effective post-Kyoto framework to facilitate international diffusion of clean technologies.
