Tim Jones, policy officer at the World Development Movement (WDM), said: "The UK government has publicly said 90% of money for ...

Greenroads lays foundation for more sustainable US road construction | Mark Harris 19.1.2010 The Guardian -- World Latest
The Greenroads evaluation of the impact of US road building is a step in the right direction, but still has miles to travel With 4m miles of highway, the USA has around 10% of the entire planet's paved roads – and spends $85bn (£52bn) annually on rolling out tens of thousands more miles. Building and maintaining a single mile of freeway takes as much energy as 200 US homes use in a year, consumes as much raw material as 1,000 households get through in 365 days and generates more waste than 1,200 homes produce annually. Now University of Washington researchers and engineering firm CH2M Hill have launched the world's first rating system for sustainable road construction, along the lines of the LEED programme for green buildings ...

Shyam Saran: Sustainable strategies 16.1.2010 Business Standard: Opinion & Analysis
When history is written of the ongoing global financial and economic crisis, will it be categorised as a temporary blip on the onward march of capitalism? Or is it likely to be seen, in retrospect, as one of those game-changing churnings in history which transformed the global landscape and the way we perceive that landscape?

Haiti: Learning from past mistakes is the first priority 15.1.2010 The Guardian -- World Latest
In the past 10 years more than $4bn has gone to rebuild communities in Haiti - and more is needed Reconstructing Haiti is the ultimate challenge to an international community which has failed over decades to lift the island state out of poverty, corruption and violence. In the past 10 years more than $4bn has gone to rebuild communities and infrastructure devastated by hurricanes, floods and landslides, but mismanagement, lack of coordination and attempts by global institutions to use Haiti as a neo-liberal economic testbed are widely believed to have frustrated all efforts. A foreign debt of $1.5bn has weighed down the economy. Last year, the government paid $79m to service debt, but received under half that to support schools, health and ...
