Abstract

This thesis examines the role of business actors in networking,
influencing and shaping the governance of China’s CDM market. By
adopting a neo-pluralistic view of business power, it reveals how
companies in the CDM market in China are wielding their unique
capabilities and technics to affect policy making and implementing
process both at the national and local level. It is based on a qualitative
case study strategy to investigate and reveal the detailed context and
causes for some worrying problems around CDM in China. 42 interviews,
plus large number of document, and field observations have been carried
out to collect data. The study also illustrated their constraints to achieve
their goals and strategic preferences due to the confrontational interests
among business actors. In general, it contributes insights of the reform era
political economy in China’s environmental and climate governance.
