“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.

“USAID continues to offer Vermont Law a unique opportunity to make a difference in Southeast Asia,” said Marc Mihaly, president and dean of Vermont Law School. “We have a proven track record in China, and this grant extension reflects that. We look forward to watching as our faculty and students continue to positively influence environmental law and policy in that region.”
