About WRI China
In 2008, WRI opened its first international office in Beijing, China. It supported China’s national strategy on environmental protection and sustainable development in major areas including synergic control and prevention of air pollution, coordinated management of water quality, water ecology and water resources, green finance and capacity building of environmental governance. WRI holds an official registration in China as a foreign NGO, as the certificate was issued by Beijing Public Security Bureau in November, 2017. With the registration, WRI advances its work on environment and sustainability in China with a new legal status—Beijing Representative Office, under the guidance and support of the public security agency and the Ministry of Environmental Protection (current Ministry of Ecology and Environment) as supervisor. The current main areas of work of WRI China include food and natural resources, climate and energy, sustainable cities, and Belt and Road Initiative.
