Global Climate Budget Met with Tepid Approval, Disappointment (Climatewire)
May 8, 2009
Climatewire quotes CGD senior fellow David Wheeler on the U.S. budget for the World Bank's Clean Technology Fund.
From the article:
David Wheeler, a fellow at the Center for Global Development and a former World Bank economist who has criticized the institution for funding coal-fired power plants, praised the request. Said Wheeler, "If the U.S. really backs truly clean technology with this $500 million, then it can certainly assist the fund in having its intended catalytic effect."
