China’s livestock transition: Driving forces, impacts, and consequences

An alternative transition is suggested to increase production efficiency and environmental performance at system level, with coupling of crop-livestock production, whole chain manure management, and spatial planning as major components, which should be implemented by government, processing industries, consumers, and retailers.

Opportunity for marine fisheries reform in China

It is concluded that serious institutional reforms will be needed to achieve a true paradigm shift in marine fisheries management in China and recommended new institutions for science-based fisheries management, secure fishing access, policy consistency across provinces, educational programs for fisheries managers, and increasing public access to scientific data.
