by Britta Fiedler
On July 2-3, the Kick-off meeting of the subproject of DCZ, the “German-Chinese Cooperation on Agriculture and Climate change“ was held in Beijing. A total of 13 experts from the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (MARA) as well as 5 German experts participated in the meeting. The objective of the workshop was to set up and agree on a working plan of the cooperation. The experts established two working groups, one focusing on crop production and one on livestock production. Until the end of 2019, the project will organize two study tours to Germany and China in order to experience the current developments within the sector at first hand. Expected outputs of the cooperation will be best practice examples compiled in policy briefs and a set of publications.
