he implementation of the Kyoto Protocol in China is crucial to emission reduction commitments as outlined in the Kyoto Protocol. This study assesses, through the use of a dynamic computable general equilibrium model, potential emission reductions, decline in economic output and population projections for China over a period of 60 years. In limiting China's emissions from current levels to 10% less from 1990 levels were found to cause an overall decline in GNP of 1%. Moreover, these declines in output can be offset through the use of Flexibility Mechanisms under the United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change.
