Berkeley/China-CDC Program For Water and Health

In 2016, after three years of planning and collaboration, the Berkeley Water Center (BWC) at the University of California Berkeley, and the National Center for Rural Water Supply Technical Guidance (NCRWSTG) at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (China CDC), have launched the “Berkeley/China-CDC Program for Water & Health” – a partnership to collaborate on applied research projects and initiatives related to water, health, and the environment.

Working together, the two institutes are developing and evaluating new strategies and programs for addressing drinking water supply, contamination & treatment, as well as related issues such as sanitation & hygiene, climate change, rural poverty & gender equality, air pollution, and other factors which impact human and environmental health in China and the USA.

In addition, the two organizations will continue to host regular conferences and workshops focused on professional exchanges, institutional and technical capacity building, results dissemination, and community outreach. The first two such conferences (in Berkeley and Beijing) were a great success and inspired ideas for future projects.

We are grateful for the support provided by UC Berkeley's College of Natural Resources, Potential Industries, and others.
