Partnership for the Yangtze river

Posted: 2008-12-01

In April 2008, GWP China Hunan was established following discussions on the environmental problems of pollution and shore erosion at Dong Ting Lake.

These discussions started in 2007 at the 2nd Yangtze River Forum. GWP China Hunan was created as a neutral platform among environmental groups, fisheries, farmers and water resources managers.

During its first year, this first Provincial Water Partnership of the Yangtze River basin set up its strategy and work plan to be implemented from 2009. The first key activity is a Workshop on Collaboration for Wetland Protection in Dong Ting Lake Basin, a step towards improved collaboration in provincial transboundary areas in accordance with IWRM principles.
