'Green' Funding for Coal Power Plants Criticised (New Scientist)
February 27, 2009
The New Scientist cites CGD's calls for a Clean Technology Fund for renewables energy projects.
From the article:
"In the US, the Center for Global Development has been lobbying the federal government not to finance coal projects in developing countries through the CTF. On Wednesday, Congress passed a spending bill which, among other things, axed former president George W Bush's request of $400 million for the CTF."
