CCICED's report was completed and presented to premier Wen Jiabao in November, 2006. The task force sees four major areas that can improve China's environmental governance, emphasizing the importance of the private sector and public participation, in leveraging investment and encouraging corporate social responsibility.
(1) Improve government capacity to enforce environmental laws and oversee implementation of environmental programs, to enhance the government's capacity to control environmental pollution, and to improve the management of natural resources.
(2) Engage the business sector to take a more proactive role in environmental management by providing incentives to those that perform well and punishing those that do not, and by promoting best practices of industrial production and hazardous accident preparedness.
(3) Engage civil society by providing greater transparency of information concerning environmental and natural resource conditions and of government decision-making activities, combined with access and participation by stakeholders, NGOs, and the general public.
(4) Establish greater policy coherence and planning capacity for both domestic and international environmental and natural resource issues.
