EGP Knowledge Base

The EU-China Environmental Governance Programme (EGP) was an 18.75 million euro EU-funded programme, with the objective to contribute to the efforts of the Chinese Government and general public to improve environmental protection through promoting public participation and accountability. It promoted enhanced environmental governance with a focus on the core themes of:

  1. Public access to environmental information
  2. Public participation in environmental planning and decision making
  3. Corporate environmental responsibility and economic instruments
  4. Access to justice in environmental matters

From 2010 to 2015, the programme team cooperated closely with the Ministry of Environmental Protection, bringing top European experts to contribute to the development of relevant policies, through a large number of seminars, conferences, publications, high-level exchanges and translations of important policy documents. The programme also allowed ideas and innovations to be tested at the grassroots level through 15 partnership projects.

This Knowledge Base contains a selection relevant documents and media materials that have been compiled by the programme. Most documents are available in both English and Chinese.
