An in-depth look at the environmental impacts of China’s Belt and Road Initiative
The BRI series is part of a special project we’re running under our Asia-Pacific grant that looks at how a major infrastructure push in China is impacting the environment in the Asia-Pacific region. You can click on the stories below to read them in full or browse our list of resources. We'll continue to update this page as we add new investigations and reportage on the impact of a project that is projected to have global environmental consequences.

 

This map shows several routes that are part of China's Belt and Road Initiative. The project has continued to expand and branch out to as far as Latin America. We've been following the environmental implications of the BRI in the Asia-Pacific region and will continue to do so through our forthcoming reporting. Zoom in to see geo-tags and links to all the stories we've published thus far.
