Sino-German Chemicals Management Joint Research Project Report

As one of the main expected outcomes of a Sino-German joint research cooperation, the Sino-German Chemicals Management Joint Research Project Report has been finalized and published on the website of the Sino-German Environmental Partnership Project. This research project was conducted in the framework of the “Sino-German Environmental Partnership Phase II” project, which is implemented by GIZ and FECO on behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety of the Federal Republic of Germany (BMU) and the Ministry of Ecology and Environment of the People’s Republic of China (MEE). Cooperating partners include the German Environment Agency (UBA) and the China Solid Waste and Chemicals Management Centerof the MEE. In this report, chemicals management policies and the respective legal framework in China and Germany were discussed, German experiences in and approaches to the implementation of environmental chemicals management have been introduced, and a future outlook and perspectives on Sino-German chemicals management cooperation have been explored. The work on the environmental management of chemicals is to be continued in the third phase of the Sino-German Environmental Partnership.

Since 2013, the Sino-German Environmental Partnership has supported bilateral environmental policy dialogue through the exchange of experience and advice on various specialist topics. Thereby, the project enhances institutional and individual capacities through training, the exchange of personnel, and knowledge transfer, to best prepare China for its future as a transformed “Ecological Civilization” and its path towards a “Beautiful China”. The partnership is overseen by the Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) of the People’s Republic of China. The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) is responsible for implementing the Sino-German Environmental Partnership, which is funded through the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of BMU. In September 2017, the Sino-German Environmental Partnership entered into its second phase, which will continue until 2021. Through its activities, the Sino-German Environmental Partnership supports its Chinese project partners in transforming the existing environmental management system into a holistic environmental governance system which involves actors from science, industry and civil society. The planned activities lead to an intensification of the German-Chinese strategic environmental dialogue. An enhanced exchange such as this will continue to positively impact China’s proactive ownership of global environmental and climate change responsibilities. This will support the achievement of the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda.
