Abstract

[Extract] As most chinadialogue readers will know, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) plans to catalyse investments in transport, energy and other projects across half the planet.

I recently led a critique (http://alert-conservation.org/scientists-critique-aiib-transport-strategy/) by 34 leading environmental scientists, geographers, economists and development specialists of the AIIB's vision (http://www.aiib.org/en/policies-strategies/download/transport/2018_May_AIIB-Transport-Strategy.pdf) for funding and promoting transport projects. Our researchers hail from 16 industrial and developing nations and represent every major region of the globe, including China.
