A food safety factory shutdown has Americans hunting for baby formula. Readying themselves for a covid-19 lockdown, Chinese in Beijing emptied store shelves. Emerging from lockdown, some in Shanghai are visiting well-provisioned markets. U.S.-China agricultural trade is booming, but many are still being left hungry. Food security, sustainability and safety remain issues.
Chinese Tidings Lecture: “Is China's Carbon Emission Target Achievable: China's Climate Policy and Economic Development - 中国碳减排目标的可达性：中国的气候政策与经济发展”
Indiana University's Center for Chinese Language Pedagogy presents the fourth lecture on climate policy and economic development in the Chinese Tidings series.
Date: Thursday, January 14
Location: Ballantine Hall 005 (NOTE ROOM CHANGE)
*Light refreshments will be served*
The Center for Chinese Language Pedagogy is proud to announce Chinese Tidings: a lecture series presented entirely in Chinese. All are invited to come and hear native and non-native speakers discuss topics ranging from academia to common-interest. Lectures will be followed by question-and-answer sessions, and simultaneous summary translations will be displayed throughout to accommodate people with little or no Chinese proficiency.
The fourth lecture will be presented by Lei Liu, a Ph.D. candidate at the College of Environmental Sciences and Engineering at Peking University, Beijing, China. He is a visiting scholar of the Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis at Indiana University. His research interests include environmental policy and management. In the past several years, he has participated in a number of projects sponsored by some local governments of China, including policy design for industrial environmental management, strategic environmental assessment, and regional environmental planning, etc. Currently, he is concentrating on the carbon dioxide emission control policy of China and its impact on China’s economic development, especially international trade.
Chinese Tidings is sponsored by the Indiana University Chinese Language Flagship Partner Program and is provided to increase opportunities for authentic interaction in Chinese between fluent speakers and our Flagship students, the next generation of global professionals.
