The EU-China Environment Project is funded under the EU Foreign Policy Instrument. It aims to support the EU-China environmental policy dialogue and helping to achieve higher environmental protection standards, more convergence between the EU and China on environmental governance and greater integration of environment into other areas of government decision making. In doing so, the project will promote innovative approaches to achieve environmental quality and green growth, in both China and Europe.
The project will focus on both forward-looking topics as well as more pressing topics which respond to current and immediate policy priorities. Global environmental issues will be included, some of these will be in cooperation with the China Council for International Cooperation and Environment Development (CCICED). The topics of particular interest for 2018 include: a short paper and workshop on biodiversity, considering that China is hosting the CBD COP15; a short paper and perhaps a workshop on plastic pollution with a focus on oceans; in-depth study, training and an overseas study visit on permitting regulation and enforcement; a short paper and workshop on green financing and investment for banks and financial institutions.
