G-7 leaders recently launched the Partnership for Global Infrastructure and Investment (PGII) to provide much-needed investment toward achieving global development goals. Rather than competing directly with China's Belt and Road Initiative as intended, PGII could instead spur a race to the top in quality infrastructure investments, Elizabeth Losos and T. Robert Fetter write for The Brookings Institution's Future Development blog.

This summer, the G-7 launched the Partnership for Global Infrastructure Investment to mobilize $600 billion for middle- and low-income countries in infrastructure investments. In an interview with BRINK, Elizabeth Losos discussed how PGII can successfully serve as a counterweight to China’s Belt and Road Initiative.

Elizabeth Losos talked with Spectrum News 1's Capitol Tonight show about what the federal government can do to reduce greenhouse gases and help communities prepare so they can be more resilient in the face of climate change.

Elizabeth Losos commented on the Biden administration awarding more than $1 billion in infrastructure funding to help make U.S. communities more resilient to the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events.

Though activists have petitioned President Biden to announce a state of emergency on climate, Nicholas Institute senior fellow Elizabeth Losos told USA Today that such a declaration may be politically risky while potential climate legislation pends.

In response to President Biden's announcement of several upcoming executive orders on climate, senior fellow Elizabeth Losos spoke to Spectrum News about the United States' need to invest in emerging clean energy industries.

In an interview with the China-Global South Daily, Nicholas Institute expert Elizabeth Losos discussed the G-7’s recently announced Partnership for Global Infrastructure Investment (PGII) and its relationship to China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

For G-7 nations to successfully advance a just-announced global infrastructure partnership, they must set widely recognized standards, argue Duke University experts Elizabeth Losos and Rob Fetter in a commentary at The Hill.

In an op-ed for the Houston Chronicle, Elizabeth Losos writes about how two new pledges from very different sources—the Chinese government and Harvard University—exemplify recent movement from influential players on climate change.

The recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report made it clear that climate mitigation and resilience measures will both be necessary to stave off the worst of the impending climate perils, writes Elizabeth Losos in an op-ed for The Hill.
