Interesting article on Labour List on climate change & Angola

26 November 2009

This article on Labour List examines what we can learn from Angola’s efforts to rebuild its society, following decades of civil war, in helping us in the UK change our society and economy so that we can avert climate catastrophe.

“Imagine if local communities could set the priorities, visions and goals for how they might reduce climate change along with the government. Sound idealistic? Well, such an arrangement has been established not in the field of climate change but in development. We are not talking about the UK. We are talking about the African state of Angola, emerging from over three decades of civil war.”

The article is written by Anthony Painter is author of Barack Obama: Movement for Change.
