There has been an increasing conflict between the disadvantages of mitigating and adapting to the climate change ability and the serious climate change problem since the 20th century. In order to solve the conflict, the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) emerges through many years’negotiations about the climate problem. The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is one of the three flexible mechanisms under Kyoto Protocol. The mechanism mainly helps the developed country that listed in the annex I of United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, and it also can benefits for the greenhouse gas emission reduction projects that investigated by the developing country in the non-annex I. They can obtain the amount of greenhouse gas emission reduction that has been verified. At the same time, the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) can promote both the developing country and the developed country to accept the responsibility for the restrictive greenhouse gas emission reduction under Kyoto Protocol. Furthermore, it can promote the sustainable development of the host country of the project and achieve the goals under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.Though the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) struggled in the sound of the query has brought about benefits to participating states, it has also brought about many problems to them. And it’s inevitable that China has been affected as one of the active participating states. What’s more, the Post-Kyoto negotiation was long delayed has also brought about many uncertain factors to the future of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).The dissertation consists of three parts:introduction, text, and conclusion.
