This chapter explores the global allocation of beneficial, environmentally neutral, and environmentally damaging foreign assistance from the 1980s and 1990s. It examines five major recipient countries in greater detail: China, India, Brazil, Egypt, and Kenya. It explores each country's local, regional, and global environmental significance; domestic environmental policies and institutions; role, posture, and reputation in international environmental politics; and environmental funding sources and priorities. It also reflects on the relationship between foreign aid and environmental protection. These case studies provoke broader questions about why some countries receive more environmental aid than others.
