Abstract:

Environmental issue is the focus that influences the sustainable development of China's economy and society. The negative externality of environmental pollution to production and living has become more and more serious, and the environmental awareness of the government and general public are enhancing and their environmental concepts are converting. Thus, the environmental regulation has been critical to the coordinated development of regional economy and environment, and to improve the living quality of residents and to build a harmonious society. Mid-term evaluation of the 12th Five-Year Plan, published by National Development and Reform Commission, shows that the development of 4 indexes (the proportion of non-fossil energy in primary energy consumption, unit GDP energy consumption, CO2 emission intensity, and NOx) has lagged behind. Also, hazy weather and human settlements have continuously deteriorated. The evaluation illustrates that the effects of the environmental management are unsatisfactory. Accordingly, it is necessary to reexamine the performance and driving mechanism of government's environmental investment and management. Environmental regulation efficiency evaluation is a critical method of assessing environmental governance performance. In this paper, data envelopment analysis is used to measure China's environmental regulation efficiency, and the spatial evolution are analyzed based on variable coefficient, Gini coefficient, spatial autocorrelation and Tobit model. In addition, the influencing factors and comprehensive driving mechanisms are discriminated. The conclusions are as follows: (1) The environmental regulation efficiency had an fluctuated upward trend during 2000-2012, and the variable coefficient and Gini coefficient presented a tendency of "combined efficiency > scale efficiency > pure technical efficiency"; (2) The environmental regulation combined efficiency, pure technical efficiency and scale efficiency have a characteristic of spatial heterogeneity, which presents a trend of "eastern region > northeastern region > central region > western region", and the spatial agglomeration of environmental regulation efficiency is emerging; (3) The economic development, urbanization, technology input, marketization, globalization have positive correlations with environmental regulation efficiency. The industrial structure (the proportion of industrial output in GDP), however, has negative correlation with environmental regulation efficiency. In general, this paper has explored the spatial evolution and comprehensive driving mechanism of China's environmental regulation efficiency. And, it has resolved the predicament in environmental regulation that the local eco-environment is improving whereas the overall situation is declining. Furthermore, it has provided a research framework of spatial evolution's geographical processes and multi-driving mechanisms, and the key scientific topics of "process + pattern" and "element + mechanism" in geography have been strengthened. Therefore, this paper can provide reference for regional sustainable development.
