Summary "There is widespread recognition - among policy-makers, business communities, and scholars - of the importance of improving environmental policy and management in China. Environmental concerns in China have triggered the publication of a number of books on the subject. However, very few books offer an in-depth case study of the environmental challenges in Shanghai." "This book aims to explore the extent to which Shanghai has managed to cope with water supply as well as water quality control challenges in terms of its sociopolitical and economic development since 1990, with a special reference to the impact of social actors on water policy. The book focuses on the contributions from each actor in water policy - the most influential actor being the Shanghai government, private companies, environmental NGOs, Shanghai citizens, and international development agencies."--BOOK JACKET
