Economic Effect of Synergistic Environmental Management: An Example of the Air Pollution Control Implemented in the Yangtze River Delta

Li Shiran, Deng Hongbing, Zhang Huan, Zhan Cheng

Abstract: Regional synergistic environmental management has emerged as a key issue in the development of urban clusters in China in recent years, and regional economic coordination is an essential factor for high-quality development. The relationship between the two is intertwined and interactive. Exploring the promotion of regional economic development from the perspective of synergistic environmental management is an important strategic choice for driving economic green growth and comprehensively advancing the construction of an ecological civilization in the new era. This paper takes the Air Pollution Control Implemented in the Yangtze River Delta policy of 2014 as a quasi-natural experiment, selects panel data from 257 prefecture-level cities and above in China from 2003 to 2019 as the initial sample, and employs the generalized synthetic control method to examine the economic incentive effects of the Yangtze River Delta’s synergistic environmental management from the perspective of policy effectiveness. Using a spatial econometric model, it investigates the economic spatial spillover effects and transmission paths of the degree of synergistic from the state of synergistic environmental management. The study finds that regional synergistic environmental management in the Yangtze River Delta significantly promotes regional economic growth, with an accelerating trend, and the results remain valid after a series of time placebo and robustness tests. The degree of synergistic has a significant spatial spillover effect on regional economic growth, where regional synergistic environmental management in the Yangtze River Delta can incentivize the economic development level of neighboring cities, ultimately achieving overall regional economic growth. Technological innovation and industrial structure are important transmission mechanisms through which regional synergistic environmental management affects economic growth, and industrial structure adjustment is the main intermediary transmission path in this impact. In the context of regional integration in the Yangtze River Delta, it is imperative to reinforce the proactive synergy among cities and enhance their positive attributes, creativity, and mobilization. This will serve as the primary impetus for promoting synergistic environmental management and fostering economic development in the Yangtze River Delta.
