Focus Area Rural Water and Food Security

The overall objective of Lot 2: Rural Water and Food Security is to support formulation and implementation of Chinese policies, legislation, standards and measures, which will enable better management, use and protection of groundwater resources and increased coverage of safe groundwater-based water supply and to ensure sustainable food production in rural areas. The approach will take departure in EU policies and the thinking behind the Water Framework Directive, the Groundwater Directive, and the Nitrates Directive thus providing a good basis for introducing European solutions and technologies in the Chinese Market.
