On April 23, 2021, an arti­cle in the South Chi­na Morn­ing Post, enti­tled “Chi­na’s Belt and Road Projects Face Cli­mate Chal­lenges,” RWR’s ana­lyst, Court­ney Hulse, offered com­men­tary on the degree to which Belt and Road projects over­lap with coun­tries encoun­ter­ing envi­ron­men­tal con­cerns asso­ci­at­ed with cli­mate change. Ms. Hulse observed, “There are at least hun­dreds of Chi­nese invest­ment projects in coun­tries that are espe­cial­ly vul­ner­a­ble to cli­mate change, and many of them are on or near coast­lines” in the course of high­light­ing the real­i­ty of Chi­nese busi­ness endeav­ors in devel­op­ing coun­tries fac­ing difficulty.
