China's environmental laws have been rapidly evolving to address growing environmental issues and prevent further environmental damage to human health and natural resources from China's continued economic growth. This brown bag event is another in an ongoing discussion on China's environmental framework, regulatory system, and its future trends. Presenters will discuss their perspectives on these issues, as well as on the role of nongovernmental organizations and cooperative programs with the United States.
