CEF and Japanese partner Institute of Developing Economies publish book on promoting river basin governance in China

Apr 19, 2005

Beginning in January 2004 the Institute of Developing Economies (IDE, located in Chiba, Japan) and the Wilson Center's China Environment Forum have been partners on a Center for Global Partnership supported study group initiative that brought together Chinese, U.S., and Japanese water experts to explore the potential for U.S.-Japan partnerships in promoting stronger river basin governance in China. The study tours and group research papers focused on river basin management institutions, financing, and public participation in Japan, China, and the United States. CEF and IDE have compiled a collection of research papers produced by the study group and some other researchers at the Institute for Developing Economies that look comparatively at river basin governance challenges in Japan, China, and the United States along three central issues: (1) river basin management institutions, (2) financing, and (3) public participation. In late May the project will also publish a trilingual policy brief on promoting river basin governance in China.
