China water sector cooperation programme

This programme will support water quality management and governance for the Chinese water resources sector. It will further serve to strengthen cooperation between Sweden and China in the area of water management and associated activities. The programme will develop a capacity building course on integrated water quality management (IWQM); facilitate twinning arrangements between basins in Europe and China, focusing on the management of pollution prevention and control; and provide technical support to policy makers to determine how economic instruments can be tailored and applied in China. SIWI will also provide input and capacity building on international event management to support the preparations for a future bi-annual forum on water quality that will be hosted MEP beginning in 2014.
