The World

October 14, 1985

The United States should consider broad steps to help Third World countries protect their environments, such as training foreigners and supporting small-scale development projects, a report said. The report was commissioned by the Environmental and Energy Study Institute, a privately supported group associated with a congressional study group. It suggests, among other things, expansion of Peace Corps environmental activities; allowing Food for Peace money to be used for conservation and land management, and investigating the possibility of forgiving or rescheduling debt as an incentive for environmental management.
