During the recent international climate talks in Bonn, Environment China partnered with chinadialogue to produce an episode on China’s Belt and Road in the context of the climate conference.

China’s Belt and Road Initiative, an overseas investment and development framework that has grown to include 68 countries, has taken centre stage in the discussion about how to direct investments away from carbon-intensive industries to clean and sustainable technologies. In this episode, representatives from non-governmental organisations and government officials from the Philippines, Pakistan, and Zambia, weigh in on what the Belt and Road means for climate action overseas.

The episode then turns to Sam Geall, executive editor at chinadialogue, to learn how China’s Belt and Road Initiative, as well as South-South Climate Cooperation, fit into its emerging role on the international climate stage. Sam discusses how China can improve its approach to overseas finance to bring investments in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement.
