Chinese Responsible Investment Overseas Newsletter Issue 12, December 2020
Welcome to our Chinese Responsible Investment Overseas Newsletter. This newsletter aims to serve as a platform for updates, insights, and tools on key topics relating to social and environmental impacts of Chinese overseas investments and business, and as a resource to promote peer learning and informed decision-making. To provide more up-to-date information for practitioners and researchers in this field, we slightly upgrade the contents with lead story and practical resources in the past quarter, and guest blogs that present cutting edge issues and in-depth analysis of how to promote sustainable development and responsible business through China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) from leading experts & advanced organizations.

We thank Xiaojun Wang at People of Asia for Climate Solutions (PACS) and Jingjing Zhang, Lecturer in Law at the University of Maryland School of Law, for contributing guest blogs for this issue. By relating personal experience engaging with indigenous peoples and showing real examples, both suggest the Belt and Road Initiative and Chinese overseas projects should address the environmental and social concerns of local communities who have been affected the most by development projects.
