Sino-German Urbanisation Partnership
The Sino-German Urbanisation Partnership is a joint initiative of the governments of Germany and China, aimed at addressing the economic, social, and environmental challenges created by fast-paced urbanisation processes and climate change in both countries. The partnership is working to influence political dialogue and create platforms for cross-city and institutional exchange of experiences, facilitate knowledge exchange and promote capacity building that can drive the development of joint solutions to these challenges. Key targets of the exchange are to reduce CO2 emissions, promote a more balanced urbanisation development process and improve quality of life in cities in both China and Germany.
The initiative also encourages other stakeholders working in the field to join the partnership and organise activities that promote progress towards these key targets.
