    Mission Possible: China’s Climate Change Policy after the Paris Agreement
    in Europe en formation (L') , 2016/2 (n° 380) ,  2016 ,  53-70
    The Paris Agreement marks the dawning of another phase of human endeavours to fight climate change. China, as one of the biggest emitters in the world, committed itself to a full-fledging policy campaign in order to fulfil the commitments to the Paris Agreement. A comprehensive patch of policies under the framework consisting of central government and a fully functional departmental structure have been established. In the context of China’s economic slowdown and a medium-speed growth prospect, and in the light of the encompassing Thirteenth Five Year Plan for Economic and Social Development (2015-2020), China’s commitments coincide with the transition to a low-carbon, service-based market economy, and therefore are likely to be accomplished with ease. The preconditions are nevertheless important as they include a fairly stable governance structure; a consistently active interaction between the actors of different levels, and a general prediction of the economic reforms mainly in the state-owned enterprises (SOEs).
