- This paper uses empirical research methods, including case analysis and surveys, to analyze the Xiaoqing River Ecological Improvement Project in Jinan, China. We found that this project has cost more than 10 Billion RMB over nearly eight years. However, pollution remains a major issue. We argue that this is due to the top-down approach adopted by Jinan government, which has failed to provide a comprehensive approach to the ecological problems. As such, we suggest that only a bottom-up, participatory approach, led by local community leaders, can solve the ecological issues.
