Exploiting conservation and conserving exploitation in a reformed Bank

Zoe Young is a London-based researcher, writer and film-maker with Conscious Cinema and author of ‘A New Green Order? The World Bank and the Politics of the Global Environment Facility’ (Pluto Press, 2002).

The talk will focus on the quiet role of the GEF-billions of dollars of aid from Western governments for the World Bank and United Nations to ‘green’ international development- in sustaining (neo-liberal) business as usual. The discussion will also feature an extract from the documentary:
‘Suits and Savages – Why the World Bank Won’t Save the World’.
