The report was prepared by Paul Bardos (r3 environmental Ltd), Kate Canning (Arup), Mengfang Chen (Institute of Soil Science, Chinese Academy of Science), Frederic Coulon (Cranfield University), Nicola Harries (CL:AIRE), Quing Hu (Engineering Innovation Centre, South University of Science and Technology of China), Kevin Jones and Hong Li (Lancaster University), Fasheng Li (Department of Soil Pollution Control, Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences), Rongxia Liu (Administrative Centre for China’s Agenda21).

Diogo Gomes (Cranfield University) also provided support for the graphical arts and assisted with the editing.
The authors are grateful to all partners of the SPF project which include a wide team of collaborators and advisors across China and UK for their useful discussions and contribution during the two workshops organised during the project. Government, Academia, Industry and Public bodies have been collaborating together to drive structural changes far beyond the scope of a single organisation.
