Guidebook on the Management and Financing of Soil Rehabilitation Projects in China
This report is part of a series of outputs of a 5-year project, Financing Models for Soil Remediation, released with support from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The project aims to support the implementation of China’s priorities and its policy development process through institutional partnerships; mutual learning and exchange; strengthening of capacity, especially in government institutions; and the effective demonstration of results on the ground in the implementation of China’s environmental priorities. The overall objective of the project is to harness the full range of green finance approaches and vehicles in the task of funding and managing the associated risks in the remediation of contaminated soils in China.
This series of reports focuses on the financial vehicles available to attract investment in the environmental rehabilitation of degraded land. It also covers the financial reforms needed to make these vehicles both viable and desirable means of investing in land rehabilitation. We draw on best practices worldwide in funding environmental rehabilitation, with a special focus on the design and use of financial mechanisms to attract private investors, share the risks, and offer a clear benefit for the rehabilitated land.
