EU China River Basin Management Programme
The EU China River Basin Management Programme (RBMP) supported China implementing its national water sector strategy and contributed to the national objective of “sustainable management and use of China’s water resources that are compatible with current socio-economic development and natural global change”.
The RBMP was executed by the Ministry of Water Resources and the Ministry of Environmental Protection and implemented at central level and in the Yellow River Basin and the Yangtze River Basin with management assistance by a JV of European consultants led by DHV.
The China Europe Water Platform (CEWP) is a key output of the RBMP. It was designed to maintain the dialogue between EU and China on water resources and river basin management and enhance it with water policy and strategy aspects.
