This grant to World Resources Institute (WRI) is in partnership with a companion grant to the Wilson Institute's China Environmental program. Its purpose is to develop a strategic mapping of future opportunities to work more directly on slowing the growth of coal fired power and industrial energy resources in China. Currently, China depends upon coal to provide 70% of its energy, and it has been the engine for the nation's rapid economic growth over the past decade. The Foundation is interested in working with the China Sustainable Energy Project and others to develop a more focused coal strategy, starting with this scoping project underway by WRI.
