Chinese-financed Hydropower Projects in Africa

The SAIS China-Africa Research Initiative published in April 2015 a study titled "Chinese-financed Hydropower Projects in Sub-Saharan Africa" by Deborah Brautigam, Jyhjong Hwang, and Lu Wang, all at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies in Washington. 

The policy brief provides an analysis of Chinese practice in financing large hydropower projects in Africa between 2000 and 2013.  While the projects provide renewable power, they also have significant social and environmental risks.
