The drive by nations to attain economic and socialdevelopments adversely affects the ecological balance of the environment. Thechallenges of maintaining a balance in the state of the global environment havebecome the major focus of many governments and the committee of nations atlarge. The global tool for measuring Environmental Sustainability ranks Chinaamong the highest on the global ecological footprints. It shows that a countrylike the United States draws its place due to its large consumption per person,while China on the other hand draws its place largely due to its enormouspopulation. The complex nature of this value with regards to the increasinglyfragile worldwide environment, suggests that the old paradigms of growth cannotwork for China where the available resources face critical challenges ofsustainability. China therefore presents a paradigmatic test case forenvironmental sustainability studies. Nigeria on the other hand sharespeculiarity with China as the largest country in Africa with regards topopulation. Though Nigeria is presently a low technology based economy,however, with its abundant natural resources and the vision to joining theleague of emerging global economies, Nigeria faces increasing challenges withthe management of its share of environmental pollution. This paper aims atidentifying the various resource and environment related challenges facing theChinese and the actions put in place towards achieving a cleaner environment asa model for addressing sustainable environment issues in emerging economieslike Nigerian.
