of Madam Deng Nan
China's Agenda 21 strives for rational resource use and development;
the promotion of energy-efficient materials and other resource conservation
technologies; and the implementation of natural resource and environmental
protection legislation and regulations. Progress towards environmental
awareness in both the education of youth and the training of government
officials is being made through an agreement between Global Communications
for Conservation and China's State Science and Technology Commission.
This joint venture, the China Environmental Global Alliance, is devoted
to developing environmental education curricula for schools in China
as well as for Chinese officials at both the national and local levels.
As Vice Minister of the State Science and Technology Commission, Madam
Deng Nan will play a critical role in this new venture, particularly
in the area of directing resource conservation technologies and energy-efficient
materials within China. The SSTC is responsible for the formulation
and implementation of all strategies, laws and regulations related to
China's science and technology development, as well as all scientific
and technological cooperation with other countries.
