A new reform is in the works to ensure independent and effective law enforcement by local watchdogs in China, Minister of Environmental Protection Chen Jining said on Friday.

The reform on law enforcement management of environmental watchdogs under the provincial level is aimed at tackling the intervention of local protectionism in environmental supervision and prompting local governments to assume their responsibilities in environmental protection, he said.
