The China Project has been awarded a grant from Harvard President Drew Faust's Climate Change Solutions Fund. The awarded study integrates research led by faculty in four Harvard schools, collaborating with counterparts at three schools of Tsinghua University and Nanjing University in China.

The study, assessing the costs and benefits of national energy and emission control policies in China, includes economists, environmental engineers, energy scientists, atmospheric chemists, and health scientists, and will feed results into a policy advisory conduit led by policy analysts. The Harvard faculty investigators include: Michael B. McElroy (Principal Investigator and Gilbert Butler Professor of Environmental Studies, Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences); Dale W. Jorgenson (Samuel W. Morris University Professor of Economics); Douglas W. Dockery (Loeb Professor of Environmental Epidemiology and Chair, Department of Environmental Health, Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health), and Anthony Saich (Daewoo Professor of International Affairs and Director, Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation, Harvard Kennedy School of Government).
