About this grant

In recent years, China has helped establish a new family of development finance institutions that rival the current multilateral development finance system. The impact made by the investments of these new institutions on ecosystems and community development has become a global issue. The Global Economic Governance Institute at Boston University has become a major source for research analyzing these impacts and providing useful data for relevant Chinese ministries. Through this grant increase, the institute will expand its work with key Chinese think tanks, facilitating additional research, and developing best practices to assist in developing policies for more sustainable Chinese development finance.
