Chapter Summary

This appendix presents a list of major environmental events that occurred in China in the year 2012 relevant to discussion of the "Top Five" environmental challenges facing Chinese cities today and affecting people's basic living conditions. These challenges are air, water, food, traffic, and garbage. One of the biggest challenges Chinese cities are facing is air pollution. In early January 2013, Beijing, which was among the first large Chinese cities required to implement the newly revised Ambient Air Quality Standard, increased the indices for main pollutants from three to six.
