This paper addresses issues having to do with economic development and its relationship to environmental and sustainability problems. This set of issues is important for a number of reasons. First, it appears to be widely perceived by many that economic development is the cause of environmental damage and reduction in sustainability. Proponents of this view tend to have an anti-development perspective in their rhetoric. Secondly, this set of issues is important because of its relevance to the World Bank's lending program.
