Chasing Mirages

Taking off today on a Western Adventure

by on Nov.24, 2010, under Posts

Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  I’ve been traveling a bit and also preparing for an adventure that starts today.  I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to join a group of Chinese environmental journalists on an info-gathering mission through Yunnan and Sichuan.  The focus of the Yunnan portion is the aftereffects of the recent drought, and the focus of the Sichuan portion is to check out the progress of hydroelectric dam construction on the wild western rivers of China.

I hope to explore further the actual implementation of environmental impact assessment (EIA)  procedures in China and eventually develop some insight into how the EIA system can be improved.

Here’s a web page about this mission from a previous year.  It’s all in Chinese but there are some cool photos.

…and Happy Thanksgiving!!!  Pour out some gravy for me.
