Abstract

Air pollution control is related to environmental quality and personal life safety, related to economic and socially sustainable development. To solve the long-term problem of haze in northern China, the “coal to gas” policy in China has been ups and downs. Exploring the change of China’s “coal to gas” policy is crucial to understand the development of environmental policy in China. This paper used the extended framework analysis of Multiple-streams Theory to take the policy adjustment of “coal to gas” in Hebei Province from 2012 to 2018 as a case, and found that the policy agenda setting of “coal to gas” is a cross-type, and different policy agenda models complement each other in the process of multi-agent game. Media promote the mutual influence between the streams and the final trend. The three streams set in the policy agenda of “coal to gas” influence each other or even blend in the flow, and flow in stages, reflecting the characteristics of mutual penetration and interaction of multi-stage and multi-stream.
