In recent years, massive greenhouse gas emissions have greatly contributed to and exacerbated global climate change, posing a huge threat to human survival and development. However, for developing countries, global climate change could have even more serious consequences. It is likely to have negative economic effects for developing countries and face a dilemma where economic growth and carbon reduction are at odds with each other, if developing countries adopt carbon reduction policies. This essay uses China’s carbon reduction policies and achievements as an example showing how a developing country could balance the economic development and carbon reduction, by analyzing Chinese experience through the aspects of government, market and technology. In terms the replicability of the China’s success, our research reveals that the Chinese experience applied in other developing countries to balance the domestic development and carbon reduction is limited in Least Developed Countries but relatively high in more developed developing countries, such as countries in the group of BRICS.
