The cooperation is focusing on scientific approaches and practical experiences for the rehabilitation of degraded forests. Recently the Federal Office for Agriculture and Food has granted the continuation of the cooperation for another 2 years. The annual exchanges will be funded through the cooperation programme “German – Chinese Cooperation in the Fields of Agrarian Research” which is facilitated by the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture.
