EU-China Environmental Governance Programme

LOCATION:Homepage>>EGP Profile>>Central Level

The key elements of the context for the implementation of EGP's "Overall Work Plan" (OWP) and its first Annual Work Plan (AWP1) consists of the MEP's commitment to improving environment governance capacity, it's specific priorities in the Programme's core themes, the environmental and other relevant sections of PR China 12th 5YDP and the Ministry's own Five Year Plans - and the existing body of Environmental Legislation and legal framework for the environmental sector in China. To understand this context thoroughly, the formulation of the OWP and AWP1 has benefited from direct intense consultations with Central level policy makers and local-level authorities and environmental managers held during the Programme's inception phase.
