Asia Program

Please come join the Wilson Center's China Environment Forum and Asia Program for a conversation with Taiwan's Minister of Environmental Protection, Dr. Stephen Shu-Hung Shen, to learn about work the EPA and Taiwan have been doing since 2010 to engage regional partners to advance global capacity in the remediation of contaminated sites, e-waste recycling and management, and reduction of air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from ports.

Over the past year Indonesia, India, China, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam, Nigeria, Ghana and other countries have engaged with Taiwan on a broad range of environmental topics, such as mercury monitoring, e-waste prevention, sustainable communities, toxic remediation sites, and environmental law compliance and enforcement. The U.S. EPA, Hong Kong, South Korea, and Japan have also lent technical experts and other forms of support to Taiwan-lead regional efforts.

Following Minister Shen's comments, Donna Drewes, the Co-director of the Institute for Sustainability Planning and Governance and Sustainable Jersey (one of the nation's leading sustainability programs) will present on how New Jersey and Taiwan are partnering to advance sustainability in schools, businesses, and households in both New Jersey and Taiwan.
