Exemplar

O custo da consciência anti-pobreza e ambiental.

How much money did the United Nations Development Program, the U.N.’s flagship anti-poverty agency, spend to create 5,280 “green” jobs around the world?

UNDP has said the price tag is $53.9 million—an average of $10,208 per job spent in 2010 on 135 environmental projects world-wide. But according to documentation obtained by Fox News, the projects that generated those jobs have a total cost of about $1.68 billion—which would work out to a much more staggering average figure of about $288,700 per job. The wildly differing size of those price tags for a fairly trivial amount of employment emerged as part of a muted rebranding effort at UNDP. Top management is trying to burnish some of its credentials in the face of internal critics who feel that when it comes to merging environmental management and economic development to solve poverty problems, UNDP is not very good at its job.

The stakes for UNDP are high. UNDP spends about $570 million a year on implementing environmental programs and projects, mostly on behalf of outside donors.

    Se tivesse que alocar custos em 1 dos 2 problemas, certamente seria no Meio-ambiente, pois ele não tem como se proteger no longo prazo

    Estatismo até onde chega:the mayor of Lancaster wants to brighten up the Mojave Desert city by broadcasting recorded bird songs.
    R. Rex Parris proposed the idea during his State of the City talk on Monday.
    The Antelope Valley Press says Parris wants to play the bird chatter from loudspeakers on Lancaster Boulevard. The mayor says there’s science to show that listening to birdsong makes people happier.
