Chinese companies are rapidly developing dams, mines and oil projects around the world. Peter Bosshard, International Rivers Policy
Director, will discuss China’s China's growing global footprint at
the San Francisco Commonwealth Club on February 13. Bosshard will focus on China's role in Africa. Among the questions he will address are: Does China's new global role offer an alternative to Western dominance for Southern countries? Or does China's quest for resources spell doom for the world's rivers, forests and climate? What is our responsibility as consumers of products that are made in China?
