Status project




At the two EPBs, a core group of 20-25 Chinese (per EPB) decision makers and technical staff will be trained in defining soil environmental management plans and gaining technical expertise to practically execute set management plans and supervise site remediation processes. The focus in Guizhou will be on area oriented approach whereas in Jiangsu the full “remediation circle” can be demonstrated.


Per EPB the following activities are envisioned:

1.1 Kick off meeting in autumn 2011. This will include a short seminar, training need analysis, site visits and assessing practical soil environmental issues in the area.

1.2 Data collection phase. EPB’s / regulators are expected to:

  • Gather environmental data on soil, groundwater and waste management (i.e. land filling) and urban planning.
  • Selecting suitable remediation case studies / demonstration sites for training purposes.

1.3 Extensive training. Analysis of relevant data / discussion of case studies / on the job training in China. currently 2 training missions are foreseen.

1.4 A traineeship for 2-3 selected persons in the Netherlands (at the RIVM) is optional.

1.5 Final workshop – possibly on the national level - aimed at evaluating lessons learned and drawing plans for the future.


MEP is represented directly and / or indirectly (via CRAES / NIES) involved in the training project. Overall results are disseminated in a workshop / conference (possibly on the national level). Depending on the level of knowledge of the beneficiaries, possibly a train-the-trainer approach can be employed.
