Yangtze River tributaries likely site for future report cards in China
In April, Simon Costanzo traveled to China with Michele Thieme and Judy Takats from the World Wildlife Fund U.S. (WWF). The trip was planned to discuss, with WWF China, if the IAN report card process would work within the Chinese context. The workshop was held over two days in Wuhan, located at the confluence of the Hanshui and Yangtze Rivers, in Hubei province. Participants included WWF staff and local stakeholders from the China Three Gorges Corporation (CTG), Chinese Sturgeon Research Institute, China Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research (IWHR), Pearl River Fisheries Research Institute, Changjiang Water Resources Commission (CWRC), and the Co-Innovation Center for Social Governance of Urban and Rural Communities in Hubei Province. The consensus from the group was that report cards could work in China and some tributaries of the Yangtze were nominated as suitable to test out the report card concept. The workshop was followed by a tour of the Three Gorges Dam.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
