Prevention and Control of Soil Pollution in China

Our group found this article to be extremely interesting and illuminating on current foreign policy.  More specifically this article focuses on soil conservation in China, where there is a major soil pollution problem.  To combat this problem, China has implemented progressive policies and laws. The new law specifies that the polluter is primarily responsible for managing and controlling soil pollution risks and restoring polluted soil.  When it is unable to be determine who polluted the land, the landowner gains responsibility of the land. Previous soil pollution in China was addressed by laws that most of the time were unable to hold companies accountable.  The new law forces companies and landowners to take responsibility for their actions and help protect the environment at the same time.
