The training workshop included lectures in classroom, demonstrations in laboratories of IWHR and Soil and Water Conservation Station of Yanqing County, and seminar. During the course lectures were delivered smoothly by the trainers and the trainees received the teaching seriously and earnestly.

Thus, as recommended by Beijing Water Resources Bureau, the programs were arranged to visit two projects (1) Shang Xin Zhuang scientific and technical demonstration project on soil and water conservation and (2) Gucheng integrated small watershed management project. Both are located upstream of Guanting Reservoir, in the poor mountain area of Yanqing county, suburbe of Beijing.
