Environmental law, agricultural policy, conservation law, climate change law, property law.
Lingxi Chenyang is an environmental law fellow at Indiana University’s Environmental Resilience Institute. As climate change threatens to undermine modern agricultural practices, she aims to identify and promote laws and policies that will increase the resilience of agricultural systems and economies.
Chenyang is working to develop frameworks that support systems of diversified agriculture and agroforestry as sustainable alternatives to monoculture farming that work with -- instead of against -- local ecosystems. An overarching goal throughout her work is to infuse property law with an understanding of the natural sciences in the same way that lawmakers consider economics in rulemaking.View full bio
