Abstract:

"With mounting public pressure to change the way international development is shaped by agencies like The World Bank, the Global Environment Facility (GEF) was created to fund projects "at the cutting edge of conservation." This documentary examines one such project in southern India, to the USA, where the GEF works from inside The World Bank. We learn the Bengal Tiger is heading for extinction, and villagers claim the GEF project forced them off their land with inadequate compensation. Tempers flare as The World Bank is accused of "treating forests as their fiefdoms." With 2.5 billion dollars to spend The World Bank's green aid unit looks promising on paper. But does it live up to its own rhetoric?"--Container.
