Yihan Cheng

YIHAN CHENG is a first-year Master of Public Policy student at The George Washington University, with a concentration in global environmental policy, program evaluation & policy analysis. She interned as a policy analyst at the International Fund of China’s Environment, where she researched environmental topics, developed training programs, and compiled notes for the Pre-COP21 Conference.

The author would like to thank Dr. Peter Linquiti for his invaluable guidance in developing and editing this book review. This paper would also have been impossible without the support of the Policy Perspectives editorial team, particularly Monika Jansen, who provided valuable insight and commentary throughout the revision process. The author would also like to express gratitude to Janette Martinez, Rumur Dowling, and James Warren for their substantive editorial input. Finally, the author would like to thank her friends, boyfriend and her family for their patience, support, and encouragement through this endeavor.
