Project Description

The People's Republic of China (PRC) is taking concrete steps to ensure that environmental resources and peoples livelihoods are not undermined by rapid urban and economic development. During the third plenary session of the CPC in February 2014, the concept of eco-civilization has been given high priority and red-lines are being developed to halt environmental degradation. The PRC government has now included sustainable management of scarce water resources as a performance indicator for local governments, and emphasized the need to strengthen eco-civilization approaches as part of the local development planning.
