Environmental Pollution Events and Emergency Response Introduction

Guangjin Tian, PekingX

In this course, we will discuss and analyze major environmental pollution incidents at home and abroad, in terms of the responses to these incidents, as well as the management of environmental emergencies, to gain a deep understanding of these environmental issues.

This course uses case studies and seminars to explore the occurrence of and responses to major environmental emergencies both at home and abroad, such as the Rhine River pollution incident, the Songhua River pollution event, the London smog episode, the Beijing haze pollution event and the Tianjin explosion accident. The background, causes, ecological restoration measures, accountability mechanisms, emergency response measures and ecological and environmental impacts of major environmental pollution events will be discussed in various contexts.

Through case analysis, we can understand the causes, impacts, and appropriate response measures to water environmental pollution events, atmospheric pollution events and safety breaches.
