This paper investigates the main actors involved in China’s climate change policy making and discusses recent development in China’s climate change policy that the country agrees to reduce energy intensity and enhance renewable energy utilization with no specific commitment regarding Greenhouse Gases emission. It is also explored in the paper the domestic and international considerations underlying this policy given its priority in economic growth and diplomatic stance in international negotiation. International cooperation through Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects is addressed which has increasingly become a preferred method in China’s effort and participation in global climate change campaign
