Environment and circular economy transition in China

Sino-German Environmental Partnership

In the context of slowing economic growth and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, China’s 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-2025) aims to achieve green development and harmony between humans and nature.  

This project supports China in designing an effective environmental and nature conservation governance system to promote the transformation towards a low-carbon economy in line with the climate goals recently set by the Chinese government. This will be done by exchanging experiences, providing advice and facilitating research and technical cooperation on prevention and control of environmental pollution, sustainable consumption and production, cooperation on biodiversity, and further topics derived from the environmental and nature conservation dialogue in synergy with climate policy measures in line with the Paris Agreement. 

Objective

The Chinese environmental and nature conservation governance system is improved through the Sino-German Strategic Environmental and Nature Conservation Policy Dialogue for policy development and implementation on environmental and nature conservation and sustainable consumption and production patterns. 

Approach

Expected Outputs

The project supports the Sino-German Strategic Environmental and Nature Conservation Policy Dialogue between the two ministries, provides specific exchanges of experiences and demand-oriented advisory services, which support the experts and leaders of the Chinese partners in the further design of policy frameworks. Based on the results of the exchange of experiences and the policy and technical recommendations, decision-makers, experts, leaders as well as actors from science, research, industry and civil society are trained in best practices and modern environmental policy instruments and supported in their application in an accompanying process at the international, national or local level.
