About the product
This report provides more detailed data and analysis, specific to China, over the report provided in 2011 on Asia and the Pacific (UNEP 2011). It can be thought of as a single country focus version of that report, and so the structure is broadly similar. For most sections the base data used is simply the China specific data assembled for the production of (UNEP 2011), and so covers the same time period of 1970 to 2005. The exception is the material flows data, which has had a major update and revision performed. The time series for material flows data has been extended to cover 1970 to 2008.
