What is an EcoPartnership?

EcoPartnerships are voluntary arrangements that stem from the U.S. - China Ten Year Energy and Environment Cooperation Framework established at the fourth meeting of the U.S. - China Strategic Economic Dialogue. The framework was developed to address the challenges of environmental sustainability and climate change with one objective being the initiation of EcoPartnerships between like-minded organizations in U.S. and China.

In December of 2008, the City of Wichita, Kansas and Wuxi, China entered into an EcoPartnership agreement.

The Wichita-Wuxi EcoPartnership specifically focuses on the exchange of best practices regarding clean air and water on a municipal and industrial levels, and is managed by the Kansas World Trade Center.
