“This extension reflects our accomplishments in China and will enable us to expand our expertise and work in the region,” said Siu Tip Lam, associate professor of law and program director of the U.S.-China Partnership.

“Vermont Law students and faculty will be engaged in research projects that directly relate to the environmental governance issues that the region faces, especially with respect to mining projects, hydropower development, and agriculture,” Lam said.

The U.S.-China Partnership was created in 2006 with the support of USAID in an effort to increase environmental governance and rule of law in the country of China. The grant was renewed in both 2009 and 2012.
