LOCATION:Homepage>>Partnership Projects

Under the EU – China Environmental Governance Programme, 15 grant-based projects took place in different parts of China in order to introduce and test new ideas on environmental governance. Each project was a partnership of European and Chinese entities.

A list of the projects is given in the table below, based upon the four themes:

  • Public access to environmental information
  • Public participation in environmental consultation and decision making
  • Access to justice in environmental matters
  • Proactive engagement of the private sector in sustainable practices

More information and results of the partnership projects can be found in the EGP Knowledge Base, including Highlighted Products by Local Projects and in particular the final EGP Local Partnership Projects Results and Achievements Brochure 2015 which provides background and description of each project; results and outcomes and the policy implications of the innovations tested. The Knowledge Base also includes a concentration of selected Outputs per Local Project.
