13. China – Africa Environmental Partnership:
The Forum on China – Africa Cooperation launched by the Chinese Vice Premier at the UNEP Governing Council in 2005, has begun to work with UNEP to extend the Forums focus to include environmental protection through enhanced mutual understanding and communication based on policy dialogue and exchanges. The priority areas include:
expanding the scope of exchanges on environmental protection between China and Africa to reinforce dialogue and exchanges in a multitude of fields such as ecological and biodiversity protection, policy-making and legislation on environmental protection and research of environmental science in a bid to seek solutions to those problems.
facilitating technical cooperation on environmental protection by spreading the use of advanced and applicable technology of environmental protection as well as relevant equipment and facilities in pollution control and treatment and ecological building and restoration among others through technical assistance.
providing capacity building and training on environmental protection for environmental officials and specialists.
Expected Outcome at IGR 2: Chinese-African partnership includes GPA related issues.
