Liu weighs in on China's investment in conservation

New Scientist article

CSIS director Jack Liu is on of several researchers examining China's effort to protect its environmental assets, which is featured in a New Scientist article. Liu notes that even though China suffers enormous environmental damage, it also is ahead of most other countries in recognizing -- and acting on -- the assault on its natural resources. Also quoted is Gretchen Daily of Stanford University, who partnered with Liu on the landmark 2003 Nature cover story "Effects of household dynamics on resource consumption and biodiversity."

Liu also is referred to in an April news article in Environmental Health Perspectives, "Accounting for nature's benefits: the dollar value of ecosystems services" about China's responses to catastrophic drought and flooding and the global nature of these events.
