WWF calls for inclusion of bold environmental commitments in the outcomes of China-Africa discussions on 19-20 July 2012 in Beijing at the Ministerial Conference of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC).

As China has become Africa’s largest trading partner, WWF has put forward the FOCAC briefing note including 40 recommendations to ensure that the 2012 action plan will place green economy and sustainable development at the core of the China-Africa relationship.

FOCAC is the highest political platform for dialogue between China and African countries. Every three years a Ministerial Conference defines principles and commitments for Chinese investment in Africa. The last Ministerial Conference was held in Beijing on 19-20 July 2012, agreeing an action plan of projects that China and African countries will undertake in the coming three years.
