Editorial Reviews

Review


"Greening Aid? reveals surprising patterns in how the greening of aid took place during the last two decades of the 20th century. It is a major work of scholarship, constituting an enormous step forward in our understanding of environmental aid."--Robert O. Keohane, Professor of International Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University


"Do no harm. That's the minimum we should expect of development assistance. But some aid has caused harm - to the environment if not also to development. Aid policies have changed as a result, but has the 'greening' of aid been successful? The evidence previously has been anecdotal. This careful study offers the most systematic treatment of this important subject yet available - a valuable contribution to the study of aid and its environmental consequences."--Scott Barrett, Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies


"The authors address whether foreign assistance has over time become more friendly to environmental concerns... To With billions spent on environmental aid each year, this text examines its effectiveness and whether it is actually going to the places with the greatest environmental need classified each project...into one of five categories according to how friendly or unfriendly it was to the environment. Their major finding is that environmental friendly aid projects did indeed grow significantly both in relative terms and in dollar amounts between 1980 and 1999... The authors explore several explanations for the difference in trends, with sometimes surprising conclusions."--Foreign Affairs

Format: Hardcover
With the environment becoming such an important issue in both the U.S. and the rest of the world, I really recommend Greening Aid. This book is a wonderful introduction to the world of environmental development assistance, which a lot of people don't know very much about. The authors do a great job of including both easy-to-interpret graphs and case studies along with some rather sophisticated economic analysis, so that this book can be enjoyed by novices, students and serious scholars alike.
