Environment, Science, Technology & Health
Since it was established in 1979 under the U.S.-China Science and Technology Agreement, U.S. Embassy Beijing’s Environment, Science, Technology, and Health (ESTH) Section has been working to improve understanding and cooperation between the U.S. and Chinese governments on a wide range of issues spanning from the bottom of the sea floor to outer space.
The Embassy’s ESTH Section works with Chinese government agencies and non-governmental organizations to advance environmental stewardship, encourage economic growth, and cooperate on shared challenges. The Section’s key areas of focus include climate change, clean energy development, pollution, toxic chemical management, space exploration, biodiversity, environmental law, and emerging infectious diseases.
