In 2011, the UK Government announced that it would end bilateral aid to Indonesia, with the exception of environmental programs to halt deforestation and to promote climate change remediation. (By Alan Oxley, London)

Your comments:

Alan Oxley has failed to disclose that he works on behalf of industrial logging and plantation companies in Indonesia and Malaysia.

While his group typically portrays itself as a '€œhumanitarian'€, pro-poor NGO, the reality its primary purpose is to promote policies the serve industrial forestry interests.

World Growth and Alan Oxley have been widely criticized for using misleading information to promote this agenda.
