Description

Supporting China's Environmental Heroes

Over three decades of breakneck economic and industrial growth has severely strained China’s environment: desertification is growing, urban air quality is among the worst in the world, water resources are being depleted and key habitats are being swallowed by development. Although China is not yet the largest per capita emitter in greenhouse gases or contributor to climate change, the warming of the planet is undoubtedly worsening its already severe environmental problems.

Despite these challenges, the Chinese economy continues to be heavily dependent on polluting industries inefficiently powered by dirty energies and the government is bend on maintaining its current economic growth path at all costs. China’s insatiable demand for natural resources, its rapidly growing carbon footprint and increasing political assertiveness in the global arena is shifting the balance of power and affecting the health of the planet. The environmental future of the world hinges on us convincing and helping China to balance its development with sustainability. 



For over a decade, Pacific Environment has been working with community-based, non-governmental organizations across China to promote sustainable development. We do so by tackling water pollutions, protecting key marine species and advocating for more accountable and transparent environmental governance. By providing small grants, strategic guidance, training and networking opportunities to dozens of grassroots groups in China, Pacific Environment is working to strengthen a homegrown environmental movement and addressing China’s most pressing environmental problems.
