  • The Economic Costs of China's Degradation - American Academy of Arts & Sciences
    comprehensive estimates undervalue the real impact of human actions on the long term integrity of the biosphere Although striving to arrive at a completely accurate total is a counterproductive quest attempting to estimate the relative magnitude of the cost of environmental degradation and depletion is a worthwhile goal Needless to say attempting to quantify the impact of human actions on the long term environment in China a country abounding in dubious statistics and unverifiable claims and peopled by masses of uncooperative bureaucrats prone to treat any unflattering statistics as a deep state secret is a far more complicated task than similar efforts in the European Union or in North America And yet such a study was attempted in China in 1984 Among the earliest attempts of its kind this study estimated the cost of environmental pollution to the country at 6 75 percent of the 1983 Gross Domestic Product GDP 3 Largely as a result of this study I decided to prepare my own independent assessment striving to make it as comprehensive as possible 4 While in the process of developing my set of estimates I came to the conclusion that it would be very useful to have a small group of knowledgeable Chinese scientists prepare quite independently a similarly comprehensive appraisal Thanks to funding provided by the Rockefeller Foundation to The Project on Environmental Scarcities State Capacity and Civil Violence directed by Thomas Homer Dixon we were able to commission the necessary studies I turned to Professor Mao Yushi to recommend the authors Professor Mao is one of China s leading economists a member of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences CASS and the director of the Unirule Institute of Economics in Beijing He has expressed a keen interest in the complex issues of modernization and environmental economics To quantify the costs of deforestation other land use changes and pollution Professor Mao recommended respectively Professor Wang Hongchang of the CASS Professor Ning Datong of Beijing Normal University and Mr Xia Guang of the National Environmental Protection Agency None of the authors had an easy task and each developed his own approach to arriving at satisfactory estimates Xia s contribution benefited from previously published studies on economic valuation of environmental impacts The author also relied on his familiarity with the relevant literature on the economic costs of environmental pollution both in China and abroad Although he could not avoid making certain assumptions his conclusions are based largely on many relatively reliable statistics and on a number of well defined cost factors In contrast for lack of any definite agreement on alternative more precise figures Professor Ning was forced to depend on official statistics many of which are clearly incorrect For example while the State Statistical Bureau claims that China has 95 million hectares Mha of farmland the Land Management Bureau estimates a total of 122 Mha and other organizations provide figures ranging from 110 to 140 Mha When even such a basic figure is so uncertain we cannot expect solid
