Stealing from the Poor: Britain Spends £440 Million on Green Schemes for Well-Off Countries

NEARLY half a billion pounds of Britain’s bloated foreign aid budget was spent promoting green projects in wealthy nations such as Brazil, a new probe has revealed.

Some £65 million of taxpayers’ cash has been used to help protect forests and wildlife in the Brazilian Amazon.

It was part of £440 million spent last year by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy on 14 ‘middle income’ countries to promote low-carbon development.
