Sino-German Environmental Partnership II

Compost Manual

The Federal Environment Agency’s (Umweltbundesamt, UBA) publication “Compost Manual” was translated into Chinese with support from the “Sino-German Environmental Partnership” project implemented by GIZ on behalf of BMU.
One of the environmental challenges we are facing today is the closing of materials loop in a resource-efficient and environmentally friendly way. This also applies to organic waste stream. However, there are very few obligatory specifications for the recycling of organic waste in the home garden. This compost manual is intended to provide assistance and answer questions in this regard.


Tomorrow‘s Cities

The Federal Environment Agency’s (Umweltbundesamt, UBA) publication “Tomorrow‘s Cities” was translated into Chinese with support from the “Sino-German Environmental Partnership” project implemented by GIZ on behalf of BMU.
How do we want to live in our cities in the future? Is it possible to create an urban environment with environmentally friendly transport, low noise levels, green spaces and a functional mix? The brochure explains how an urban environment with less traffic, fewer cars and fewer health and climate hazards can be achieved.
