Following National goals of development, Shanghai developed its own environmental governance with specific objectives. The city has processed a similar approach of National governance but has attained different results. The city has adapted efficaciously its own policy by changing the structure of its economy, modifying the energy structure and increasing the share of renewable energies by allocating significant budget to meet the objectives. The governance can be defined as successful according to substantial results such as different techniques of mitigation, the decrease of energy consumption after 2013 and a better air quality. Shanghai has acted in local level of actions to implement efficacious environmental governance. (Less)
