The seminar had a particular focus on the access to justice in environmental matters. Therefore, in addition to three EGP officials, the participants included one judge from the Natural Resource Court of the Supreme People’s Court of China, one official from the Department of Policy and Law of the Ministry of Environmental Protection of China, a local lawyer and three officials from other EGP Partnership Projects.
During the seminar, Ms. Gao Xiaoyi from ACEF introduced the policy outcome and progress of the EGP-Guzhou project, and got valuable input from the participants. Mr. Johan Strandberg and Mr. Deguo Kong from IVL also introduced the core content of EDA, particularly focusing on the four steps of EDA. The IVL team’s presentation successfully raised the interests of the participants into the field visit on Friday afternoon.
On Friday afternoon all of the participants of the policy dialogue seminar visited a local coal mine. The IVL expert Mr. Johan Strandberg shared his knowledge and experience of EDA in connection to coal mines with the participants. All of the participants including the officials from EGP and the two Chinese governmental agencies were extremely pleased with the policy dialogue.
