As a good example of early stakeholder engagement, in the Yangtze, the project team promoted community water management by launching a pilot steering committee in Pingwu County, located along the Huoxi River. The committee brought together representatives from multiple government agencies, including the bureaus of forestry, water resources and environmental protection, a private company and community members to discuss local watershed issues and conservation efforts. Since its formation, the committee has organized river monitoring projects, and has developed a comprehensive management plan for the Huoxi watershed.
