Chinese Journal of Population, Resources and Environment

Chinese Journal of Population, Resources and Environment (CJPRE) is a peer-reviewed international academic journal publish original research in the fields of economic, population, resource and environment studies as they pertain to sustainable development. More specifically, CJPRE aims to address and evaluate the field's theoretical frameworks, capability building initiatives, strategic goals, ethical values, empirical research, methodologies and techniques.

CJPRE started publication in 1992, and sponsored by the Chinese Society for Sustainable Development (CSSD), Research Center for Sustainable Development of Shandong Province, the Administrative Center for China's Agenda 21 (ACCA21) and Shandong Normal University. The former Chinese leader Mr. Deng Xiaoping inscribed the Chinese title of the journal.

Since the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, the field of sustainable development has developed rapidly. Although it remains an emerging field of research, it has proven influential and continues to provide new angles for understanding how current events may impact society.

While CJPRE originally focused on assessing China's advances in the field of sustainable development, the journal now looks toward sharing global developments from both developed and developing countries.

The journal welcomes manuscripts on:

  • sustainable development goals
  • global environmental governance
  • ecological civilization construction
  • environmental economy
  • green development
