This chapter follows on from the previous one by moving into the context of China. We start with a detailed analysis of China’s urbanisation process by discussing some of the past and current challenges of urban growth and urbanisation. We then move into the narrative for the evolution of eco-development in China, and further discuss the positioning of China in relation to its eco-development strategies. In here, we explore some of the key national policies on China’s eco-development, before concluding with one local example.
