China’s Overseas Development Finance Database: Webinar Launch & Demonstration
Chinese policy banks provided close to half a trillion dollars in development finance to foreign governments from 2008—2019. This new interactive database allows users to examine the geolocation of China’s overseas development projects and to explore their proximity to indigenous people’s lands, critical habitats, and national protected areas.
The interactive China’s Overseas Development Finance Database maps 615 development finance projects with their specific geographic footprints and shows their overlap with different types of socially and ecologically sensitive territories for context.
Join us Thursday, December 10th 9:30AM-10:30AM EST for the launch of our new interactive database.
