“The Communist Party of China shall lead the people in building a socialist ecological
civilization”—these monumental words were incorporated into the Constitution of the
Communist Party of China (CPC) at the 18th CPC National Congress, and then further
developed as a concept during the 19th CPC National Congress, unveiling a new era
of China’s development. Building an Ecological Civilization provides the reader with an
overarching view of China’s approach toward ecological civilization, outlining the country’s
theoretical framework and concrete strategies, including its policies, plans, and regulatory
efforts. The book draws on selected speeches by President Xi Jinping and official documents
on ecological civilization, an important part of the Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with
Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.
