Bono at the UN

Bono and his personal economic guru Jeff Sachs were blogging for the Financial Times during the week they were in NYC for the UN meetings on the MDGs. Worth browsing.

Sachs especially isn't too happy with US participation in recent efforts to reduce global poverty and disease. But there are some interesting proposals floating around for combining poverty alleviation with addressing climate change.

Poverty & climate change is really exciting. Check out Chintan Environmental Action Group of India (http://advocacynet.org/page/chintan), for example. They represent poor wastepickers from Delhi who have a significant impact on increasing recycling and while providing livelihoods to some of the poorest Indians.
