    Just read a nice review of the 3 Rivers Eco-Lodge in Dominica in today’s Washington Post (if you want to read the online version, you have to register, but it’s free to do so). 3 Rivers is a good example of the small, rustic variety of Green Globe-certified lodging one can find in Latin America […]

    Implications of the Stern Review for LAC, Part I

    Tuesday, December 26th, 2006

    Okay, I know what you’re thinking: the Stern Review — the analysis of the economic costs/benefits of coming to grips with global climate change that was commissioned by the UK Government and coordinated by the head of the Government Economic Service (and ex-Chief Economist at the World Bank) Sir Nicholas Stern — has been out […]
