Introduction

This report formed the Scoping Study for proposed collaboration under the urban theme of UK-China Sustainable Development Dialogue (Urban SDD), one of several initiatives arising from the Joint Statement on Sustainable Development signed by the governments of the People’s Republic of China and the UK in November 2005. The lead Chinese partner for the Urban SDD is the Ministry of Construction (MoC), and the lead UK partner is the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). The report sets out a framework for collaboration on the Urban SDD, based around two priority areas identified by the MoC - ‘planning for sustainable cities’ and ‘low income urban households’.
