Let $M$ be an $n-$ dim compact Alexandrov space with curvature $\geq k$ with non-empty boundary $\partial M$.

Recently, a notion of generalized lower Ricci curvature bound on metric measure spaces has been defined, called $RCD^*$ condition.

Question: Does $M$ satisfy $RCD^*((n-1)k,n)$ condition ?

Remark: If M has no boundary, i.e., $\partial M=\varnothing$, then it is well known that $M$ satisfies $RCD^*((n-1)k,n)$ condition. The definition of $RCD^*$ condition is given in [1,2].
