The CPL is examining the role of Chinese coal investments in Southeast Asia and the Mekong Delta. This study will assess local stakeholder views on these investments, the economics of coal versus alternative cleaner options in each specific country, the respective roles of the donor versus recipient, and policy incentives on both sides in shaping the investment decision. Fieldwork will be completed in India, Indonesia, Nepal, and Vietnam.
