The politics of waste management in greater china, environmental governance and public participation in transition, Natalie Wai Man Wong

"The growth of municipal waste is a common challenge found in the urbanised cities of Greater China, but the question of how to manage municipal waste is controversial. Wong examines the politics of managing municipal waste in three cities of Greater China: Guangzhou, Taipei and Hong Kong. She looks at the controversies that arise from the issue and the consequent politicization of the various solutions that are adopted. Focussing particularly on the dynamics of policy actors in the three cities, she compares the different political situations in each with the others. This provides a valuable lens through which to explore the larger issue of the political transformation of Environmental Management in the Greater China region. A compelling insight into environmental policy-making in Greater China, for scholars studying the dynamics of Chinese politics"--, Provided by publisher
