Though environmental problems in China are well known world­wide, particularly critical issues such as the Three Gorges Dam Project, acid rain and dust storms, they are misunderstood by foreign politicians and scholars. This article introduces Chinese environmental policy and its effi­ciency from a Chinese environmental perspective. I will examine the evolution of Chinese environmental policy and its gains and losses in the context of a transforming Chinese economy, society and politics. The first part of this arti­cle describes the formation and development of Chinese environmental policy. The second part analyses the implementation of Chinese environmental policy and its impact. The third looks at the obstacles and questions that stand in the way of development and implementation of environmental regulation and pro­tection in China. My argument is that Chinese environmental policy is im­pressive and comprehensive, but its implementation is incomplete.
