The 3rd Yale Symposium on the Impact of Chinese Overseas Investment: Greening The Belt & Road

Host: Yale University School of Forestry & Environmental Studies

Date: January 25th, 2019

Venue: Kroon Hall, 195 Prospect Street, New Haven, CT 06511


This Symposium will explore the ways in which China’s impact on the world is evolving as Chinese companies and investors continue to shape global supply chains and local economies. We seek diverse perspectives from NGOs, businesses, and academia to provide nuanced analyses of various topics, including but not limited to: what the Belt and Road Initiative actually is; China’s changing environmental governance and policies; climate considerations in infrastructure development; the implications of the Belt and Road for biodiversity and ecosystems, among others.
