Strategic Environmental Dialogue Forums with Newly Industrialising Countries

As of: October 2021

The purpose of the project was to widen the strategic environmental policy dialogues with major newly industrialising countries such as Brazil, China, India and South Africa. In the context of regional initiatives undertaken by German industry (e.g. APA, LAI, NMI, SAFRI) and in close cooperation with the selected newly industrialised countries, the project conducted bilateral environmental policy forums, and ensured its technical, strategic and organisational preparation. The dialogue forums were normally linked to a business exchange or, in some cases, to an environmental trade fair.
