The Feasibility of the Rockefeller Foundation Engagement in the Chinese Healthy City Programs

Zhao, Junteng

This research analyzes the feasibility of the engagement of the Rockefeller Foundation in Chinese new healthy city programs through a general evaluation and two case studies. The results show that the engagement is promising, for the Rockefeller Foundation which can provide a small amount of funding and important technical support in water management, livability improvement and economic reform, yet the trust between the Rockefeller Foundation and local government is weak. Chinese cities can acquire a good international reputation and resources through a collective framework, which helps these cities to open their eyes, win a broader stage and export their own experience.
