The seminar invited 24 representatives from 13 countries respectively distributed in the Asian-Pacific region (Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Nepal and Sri Lanka), Africa (Uganda, Tanzania, Egypt and Cote d'Ivoire) and Latin America (Cuba and Peru). They serve in the areas of addressing climate change, environmental management, industrial management and cleaner production in their own countries.

The training lasts 10 days and combines classroom instruction, on-site visits, discussions and exchanges. For the lectures, some famous professors from Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences and Tsinghua University were invited to share valuable experience and successful cases in China about addressing climate change, carbon trading, industrial carbon emission, environmental protection and cleaner production. During the training, representatives visited Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences and discussed with the leaders from various departments including the cleaner production center in environmental management, environmental protection technology and cleaner production policy. The representatives visited some enterprises such as Tus-Sound Environmental Resources Co Ltd, Beijing GeoEnviron Engineering & Technology Inc, and China Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection Group as well to realize the advanced technology and related applications in environmental protection and carbon emission reduction.

The training summarized national reports and technical demands from 13 countries, including applications of renewable energy, construction of low-carbon parks, energy saving and emission reduction technology in the industry, clean and effective utilization of fuel coal. Many representatives expressed that Chinese experience and China's model provided a reference for them in policy-making and practical ability. They hope this training could facilitate mutual communication and understanding, and continue advancing international cooperation in addressing climate change and solving environmental issues that we all face and to provide strong support for pushing the implementation of China's strategy "One Belt and One Road" as well as South-South cooperation.
