Occasional Paper No. 17, October 2012

China is the largest emitter of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the world and faces both domestic and international pressure to curb its emissions and contribution to climate change. Recognizing its role and potential for being a leader in addressing climate change, China has developed various policies and measures to address the issue. This paper presents a case study from The Asia Foundation-CEEPR project in an attempt to answer the following questions: What are the challenges to engage SMEs in the low carbon transition process in China, and what hurdles exist? What are the opportunities in the low carbon transition, and what incentives might be put in place to promote the transition?
