Over the past several years, China has made swift progress reducing its air pollution levels. Between 2013 and 2018, concentrations of small particulate air pollution—the most significant pollutant for human health—fell by nearly 40 percent on average, with larger reductions in key regions. However, continued progress is essential, and Chinese policymakers have signaled that future reductions must carefully balance cleaner air with cost-effective policies. In 2019, the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago (EPIC) and the University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS) launched the Joint Center for Energy Policy Research in China. This unique partnership aims to support joint research at the frontier of understanding and addressing key energy and environmental challenges in China. Join us to learn about the important work being undertaken by the EPIC-UCAS Joint Center and hear key insights from its inaugural set of projects.

过去几年里,中国的空气污染治理取得了长足的进步。2013年至2018年期间,小颗粒空气污染物(对人类健康影响最大的污染物)浓度平均下降了近40%,主要地区的降幅更加明显。但是,持续性减排至关重要。中国的政策制定者表示,未来减排工作必须在清洁空气与高成本效益政策之间取得平衡。2019年,芝加哥大学能源政策研究所(EPIC)与中国科学院大学(UCAS)成立了中国能源政策研究联合中心。这一特别伙伴关系旨在为前沿科研合作提供支持,加强对中国重要能源和环境挑战的理解与应对。我们诚邀您共同了解EPIC-UCAS联合中心的重要在研课题,以及中心首批科研项目所带来的洞见。
