讲座题目:Clearing the Smog: Monitors, Accountability and Pollution Reduction in China

 

摘要Despite ambitious environmental laws in many countries across the globe, the enforcement of these regulations is often weak. Holding government officials accountable for this lack of enforcement is in turn often marred by poor information about environmental quality. In this paper, we study whether better environmental monitoring can solve this issue and improve the effectiveness of policy. We focus on air pollution in China and investigate the impact of a nationwide monitoring program. Using identification strategies that exploit strict assignment criteria set up by the central government, we show that an additional air pollution monitor reduced satellite-based measures of pollution by 2-3% and increased enforcement of air-pollution regulations by 20%. These effects are driven by local officials that face strong incentives to reduce pollution and are stronger when there is limited scope for data manipulation – suggesting that better quality information can strengthen accountability of implementing officials and improve policy outcomes.
