Announcing China Development Brief's New Chinese NGO Directory and Special Report

China Development Brief recently published a new Chinese NGO Directory that is available online at and in print.  The bilingual (Chinese-English) Directory (with 251 NGO profiles and a Special Report: Mapping China's Public Interest NGOs) is one of the most important reports and publications that we have produced at CDB in many years. It took us more than one year to research, compile, translate and edit and is the first-ever public directory focused solely on grassroots Chinese NGOs. We hope it will serve as a valuable reference for anyone interested in NGOs in China.

  1. Hi Shawn,

    I'm having difficulties with accessing the website that you linked, and I can't access it even when I search for the Chinese NGO Directory via google. Is the website just temporarily down? If it is going to be down for a while, would it be possible for you to send me the NGO directory (in English) or direct me to another place online where I can download it?

    Also, thank you very much for working on this compilation and publishing it! I am headed to Shanghai soon, and this seems like the ideal resource for finding the right NGO to volunteer with.


  2. Hey, I would really like to download th PDF, but it somehow doesn't work, could I get it on any other way?

  3. I apologize for the problems with our website. Sometimes our website crashes because of problems related to the Chinese website which is quite old, so please be patient and if you cannot access the Chinese NGO Directory or download a PDF, please try again another time. We're trying to resolve these technical difficulties, but in the meantime, please try again. Thanks!
