Ecological Compensation and Green Development Institutional Reform in the Yangtze River Economic Belt

From contributing water for the South to North water transfer scheme supplying Beijing, to the industrial activity which has impacts on other parts of PRC in economic, social, and environmental terms, the idea of the YREB very much takes the focus across many different areas of influence. In the long term, the YREB will play an increasingly important role in shaping the country’s approach to achieving an “ecological civilization” and set a precedent for thinking differently on river basin management. On the backdrop of a vast roadmap of ideas surrounding the concept of the YREB and keeping in mind the ecological civilization aspirations, this paper highlights key recommendations and principles that need to be considered.
