China - Contaminated Site Management Project (English)

The project development objective of the Contaminated Site Management Project for China is to improve the country’s capacity for managing site contamination, and demonstrate environmentally sound identification and cleanup of sites contaminated with Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) and other hazardous chemicals. The project is comprised of three components. Component 1, capacity development for prevention and control of site contamination included the following: works on the Soil Pollution Prevention and Control Law and its Implementation Rules, and four technical guidelines on cleanup of contaminated sites focusing on development of other necessary priority technical guidelines for both prevention and control of site contamination, developing and providing systematic training courses for nation-wide government officials and cleanup practitioners on laws, regulations, technical guidelines/ standards, and environmental and social safeguard requirements for contaminated site cleanup, and developing a national database for POPs contaminated sites by carrying out initial site investigation and risk assessment of POPs sites in China. Component 2, cleanup demonstrations of sites contaminated with POPs and other hazardous chemicals, demonstrates the cleanup of several sites (estimated 5-6 in total) contaminated with POPs and other hazardous chemicals. Component 3, project management, support incremental operating costs associated with project management, including day-to-day project implementation, procurement and financial management, and environmental and social safeguards functions.
