China Europe Water Platform launched at 6th World Water Forum
China and Europe have agreed to establish a platform for dialogue, joint research and private sector cooperation on better management of water resources.
On March 14, 2012 Chen Lei, Minister of Water Resources of China and the European Union, represented by the Danish Minister of the Environment, Ida Auken, signed a joint statement to establish the water platform.
The statement recognizes that China and Europe face similar challenges in managing water resources, and that water resources are expected to become increasingly strained due to socio-economic development and climate change. More
