National Stakeholder Awareness Workshop in China: Promoting Acid Deposition and Air Quality Management in East Asia – Join us on 18 October!
Registration is now closed.
Background and Objectives
The Acid Deposition Monitoring New Workshop in East Asia (EANET) was established in 2001 as an intergovernmental initiative to create a common understanding of the state of acid deposition problems in East Asia, provide useful inputs for decision-making at various levels, and promote cooperation among countries. The People’s Republic of China is one of the 13 EANET Participating Countries (PCs). In 2021, the PCs decided to expand the scope of EANET to explicitly cover air pollution and adopted a Supplementary Document (Annex) to the Instrument. EANET, as an intergovernmental initiative, is bound by an Instrument that PCs have committed to.
EANET’s activities are guided by five-year Medium Term Plans and a Work Programme and Budget approved by the PCs every year. In 2023, the Secretariat is organizing National Stakeholder Awareness Workshops to support the implementation of activities of the EANET and to better understand specific country needs. The EANET National Awareness Workshop in China will be held on 18 October 2023, from 9:30-11:30 (Shanghai time) at the Fudan University in Shanghai and online, as a side event of the First International Conference on Chemical Weather and Chemical Climate (CWCC2023). The EANET Workshop is co-organized by the Secretariat and the Network Center for the EANET, the Fudan University, Ministry of Ecology and Environment, P.R. China.
This workshop aims to showcase the achievements and activities of the EANET over the last 20 years including activities involving P.R. China and to encourage more cooperation with EANET and P.R. China in the implementation of the expanded scope and the EANET Project Fund activities. Participants of the workshop will be government officials, academicians, non-government organizations, and the private sector.
