Lesotho at 50

Lesotho’s rocky and (as the Prime Minister aptly put it), tortuous journey of independence began a little earlier than 1966. Together with many individuals and groups after them, Lekhotla La Bafo fought for Basotho’s independence from Britain, pre-1965/6.

It has not been an easy trip, given that we are for the most part, still on it.

We do however, need not overlook the humble strides we’ve taken in our first five decades of independence.

Bangladeshi Academics Accuse the West of Blowing Climate Funds on Powerpoint Slide Consultants

Watts Up With That?

money_sucking_vortex

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

According to two high profile Bangladeshi academics, the majority of climate funds which reach poor countries are being spent on expensive outside consultants who arrive, show a few powerpoint slides, then leave, with very little genuine benefit to the recipient countries.

Stop sending climate consultants to poor countries – invest in universities instead

As we edge closer to global consensus on climate change and the need to reduce emissions, the focus has moved from debating the science or the need for global action to the responsibility of individual countries to provide assistance to those affected.

Not all countries have same capability to reduce emissions, measure and report progress, or increase resilience against climate change. To make matters worse, the countries that do not have these capabilities, such as Bangladesh, are often the ones that suffer the worst effects of climate change. To breach this gap…
