China to Reward Cities and Regions Making Progress on Air Pollution

China to Reward Cities and Regions Making Progress on Air Pollution

Chinese officials are now going to be offering monetary incentives to cities or regions that improve air quality significantly. Approximately 1.65 billion dollars will be distributed this year. The reasoning for this money distribution is that Beijing and Shanghai ranked among the least livable cities in the world due to air pollution. The Chinese have difficulty keeping with environmental regulation laws so hopefully this reward will boost their motivation to reduce air pollution.
