SUITS AND SAVAGES
Why the World Bank Won¹t Save the World
The Global Environment Facility (or GEF) looks promising on
paper - with two and a half billion dollars from the world¹s
governments to spend on global green aid, and an inclusive,
democratic model of governance. But does this newest of the
international financial institutions live up to its own rhetoric?
SUITS AND SAVAGES looks at a GEF/World
Bank 'ecodevelopment project from the ground up - travelling
between one remote tribe in India and another, more powerful,
in Washington DC; spanning the gulf between their environments.
Based on research from the University of Hull UK, with support
from the ESRC Global Environmental Change Programme, SUITS
AND SAVAGES makes difficult issues accessible and is an ideal
tool for use by educators working on development, aid, indigenous
people and/or environment issues.
