Wanqing Zhou has written an article for Diálogo Chino based on her Triangle research for last year’s Global Research Forum on Sustainable Production and Consumption in Shanghai.
Wanqing looks at China’s recent announcement to lift its ban on beef imports from Brazil, and the consequences of this economic shift, including further consolidation of a resource-intensive global production model.
The article is available in English, Portuguese, and Spanish, and also Chinese on Diálogo Chino’s sister site, China Dialogue. The text versions of the article are also available:
