Every year, billions of dollars of environmental aid flow from the rich of the North to the poor of the South. Why do donors provide this aid? What do they seek to achieve? What explains the patterns of environmental aid spending—is it designed to address real problems, achieve geopolitical or commercial gains abroad, or buy political mileage at home? And does it always go to the places of greatest environmental need? This groundbreaking text is based on the authors' work compiling and evaluating the environmental impact of over 400,000 development project by more than 50 donors to over 170 recipient nations. Greening Aid? explains major trends over the last decades, ranks donors according to their performance, and offers case studies which contrast donors and types of environmental aid.
