Speaker Dr. Kristen McDonald
Summary Dr. McDonald’s organization, Pacific Environment, helps grassroot groups in China solve environmental problems in their own community by giving them training and legal advice.  Grassroot efforts promote environmental awareness and education.  Though the central government focuses on environmental issues, uniform and rigorous application of environmental laws has been lacking and thus presents a key challenge.  China’s major environmental issues are water pollution, particularly ground water pollution, soil pollution, and air pollution.
