U.S. EPA Creates New Chinese Web Site

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has created a new Chinese-language Web site to compile EPA Chinese-language materials on a wide variety of issues from lead poisoning prevention, energy efficiency, and clean water to proper management of pesticides.>>The site also serves as a tool in delivering health and environmental information to the Chinese-speaking community, both here in the U.S. and worldwide, to help protect local communities as well as the global environment. Chinese is the third most widely-spoken language in the U.S., after English and Spanish.

The new web site should also enhance environmental cooperation between the U.S. and China. EPA has a good program of cooperation with several Chinese governmental bodies to address threats to human health and the environment, including initiatives on air pollution, water pollution, and management of hazardous waste and toxic substances. EPA also collaborates with China on research, policy development, and buildup of environmental enforcement capability. (View EPA Chinese Site)
