Rio Plus Ten
Neil Middleton Phil O'Keefe
Price: $ 22.5

Rio Plus Ten took place in South Africa in 2002. In this book, the authors revisit the agenda established in Rio ten years ago and cover the events of the intervening years: global warming and the unfolding of the arguments over climate change, GM crops, water, patents etc., in order to examine what progress, if any, has been made. / In unpicking the links between neo-liberal economics and the transnationals, the authors expose the poverty of so-called international protocols and resolutions which claim to offer solutions - but in virtually every case remain part of the problem of continuing poverty and environmental degradation in the non-Western world.

Neil Middleton has written widely on development and aid and is a consultant with ETC-UK. He is the co-author, with Phil O'Keefe, of Tears of the Crocodile: From Rio to Reality in the Developing World; Redefining Sustainable Development; Disaster and Development: the Politics of Humanitarian Aid and Negotiating Poverty, published by Pluto Press. Phil O'Keefe teaches Economic Development and Environmental Management at the University of Northumbria. He is also the Director of ETC-UK
