The climate emergency is accelerating rapidly, posing a direct threat to all life on earth.
The world must halve global greenhouse-gas emissions before 2030 to keep global average temperature rises below 1.5C, and we must achieve this while protecting nature and ensuring social justice.
China has a central role to play in these efforts. As South America’s biggest trading partner, and a major source of investment across Latin America, Chinese companies, lenders and development initiatives provide much-needed support for infrastructure, innovation and renewable energy. In other cases, Chinese trade and investment can lock in high-carbon growth, or exacerbate negative social and environmental impacts on communities.
Without high-quality information, effective exchange and dialogue cannot occur, and solutions cannot be found. Diálogo Chino produces high-quality environmental journalism that promotes this dialogue between China and Latin America, and within the region, crossing linguistic and cultural barriers to drive real-world impact.
Our information provides vital insights for policymakers, civil society, journalists, academics and others working to protect the health of our planet. At this critical moment, our commitment to building cooperation around these focus areas has never been more vital.
Diálogo Chino is published in Spanish, Portuguese and English, and produced by staff in Mexico, Peru, Brazil, Argentina and the UK – with freelancers across Latin America and the Caribbean, and a network in China and around the globe.
We are supported by China Dialogue Trust, a UK-registered charity, and reach audiences in China through our partner site China Dialogue and its many republication partners.
We rely on philanthropic funding, retain strict editorial independence, and are wholly independent of any government.
Our articles are frequently syndicated by other media outlets, assisting us in our mission to bring local voices to global audiences – and global stories of hope, action, and change to local communities.
