Lila Buckley (IIED) & Professor Wang Hua (University of China and PACE)
The focus of this webinar is the dynamics and safeguarding practices of Chinese overseas hydropower investments, providing insight into whether practices are improving and what is driving this. Understanding these drivers helps us to identify leverage points for improving the social and environmental outcomes of large dams in LDCs.
Lila Buckley and Professor Wang Hua are developing a picture of the scope and scale of Chinese hydropower overseas and investigating who the key players are, the drivers and patterns of investment and the business interests and set up. In their webinar they will be presenting their research and seeking input to their FutureDAMS working paper.
