News I enjoyed reading today

is this one about India rejecting a potential World Bank aid for tiger conservation. Is this a good example of the country-led processes that Owen Barder talks about? or is it a bad example?

Reports are that the Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh was quite keen on getting the WB aid, but ‘experts’ opposed the move and succeeded in changing the Minister’s mind.  Apparently the last time the World Bank ad worked with India on tiger conservation (1996 – 2004), there were serious differences of opinion.

I donot know enough about the issue to take sides on this one. But I’m going to find out…
