    "The Brown Agenda": urban environmental problems and policies in the developing world.

    Only a small proportion of the available literature on sustainable development in the Third World has focused upon the environmental problems of towns and cities. The range of environmental problems experienced by Third World cities has recently been referred to as the Brown Agenda. These problems can largely be related to the development process, with some problems worsening or improving with income growth, while others may first worsen then improve. At any rate, the nature, range, and mix of environmental problems found in any urban area is definitely influenced by the general level of development of the country concerned. The Brown Agenda consists of two main components. One component is associated with traditional environmental health issues, while the other includes those problems which have arisen due to rapid industrialization and currently tend to be less widespread than the former concerns. The main items of the Brown Agenda are reviewed and considered in terms of urban development. The nature of environmental problems in developing country cities and the relationship between the environment, poverty, and shelter are discussed with reference to the case of Calcutta. The author finally considers how best to manage and plan the urban environment, considering recent proposals by international agencies such as the World Bank.

    Brown Agenda

    Personally I think Gorden Brown is an accountant & has not got a clue about being a Prime Minster. His accountancy skills are that high that he has got so far, inclusive with a bit of timing / luck as well. Now what we are seeing is the blinkers any account has towards business or being or politician in general. It is a people world if you were not to know? I think he is just holding on not knowing himself what he is doing. That is not to say he is a great man, he is someone riding his luck, has been highly successful & deservedly but now the cracks are to appear. He wont be in again which is sad to say but he's an accountant who has no inter personal skills. (I mean he has been seen wearing a blue tie, come on that is a school boy error.) Don't believe me well lets see who is the next prime minster & we can all hold our words till that date.

    1. Build three million more homes across the country by 2020.

    2. Green "tree hugging" agenda
