China textile park signs water management pact
Changzhou National Hi-Tech District's Textile and Dyeing Industrial Park is working with the WWF to adopt and implement a series of innovative approaches to water management.
The project, driven and implemented by the Jiangsu Development and Reform Commission and the World Wide Fund for Nature, will involve better management of the water supply and water consumption, conservation and drainage, and joint pioneering of water management efforts across all businesses throughout the industrial park and entire basin.
The project is designed to improve governance of the Taihu basin, with the aim of boosting social and economic sustainable development. Over the next two to three years, the hope is to gradually turn the basin into "a model of proper ecological management and governance" by working with major industries and industry parks and by adopting innovative management and governance models.
Changzhou National Hi-Tech District's Textile and Dyeing Industrial Park is home to around 300 manufacturers, with total annual output value exceeding CNY10bn (approx US$1.61bn).
The effort will include: choosing pilot companies who will improve their skills at water management; organising an expert consulting team who will advise on innovative approaches to water management; establishing platforms for dialogues between multiple parties to establish additional demonstration pilots; and evaluating the industrial park's influence on the surrounding basin.
