Summary:Capitalism is not the only '-ism' flourishing in China today. Since the early 1990s, the country's battles against dust storms, deforestation, watershed pollution, and other problems have attracted the attention of both domestic groups and foreign environmental organizations. The government in Beijing signaled its official commitment to sustainable development after the 1992 Rio Earth Summit. Since then, says China scholar Guobin Yang, an array of bilateral aid agencies, development banks, and international non-governmental organizations has bolstered homegrown Chinese activism. The ever-widening diffusion of the internet has also granted Chinese environmentalists a vibrant, if politically precarious, space to come together to discuss grievances and debate solutions. Yet even with the influence of foreign organizations in cyberspace and on the ground, Yang argues,Chinese activists have agendas and concerns that are particular to the Chinese context. If they are to succeed in addressing China's urgent environmental problems, Yang says, they must find the right balance of global input and local leadership. (YaleGlobal)
