Debate, by Richard Tren and Roger Bate. (2001, 90
pages, Rs 75/- for delivery within India,

authors warn that preoccupations of the rich in western countries often
result in inappropriate and unaffordable solutions being imposed on poor
countries. The classic example of this phenomenon is the current attempt
by western governments to ban globally the pesticide DDT. But although
DDT can be environmentally harmful, it is still required for malaria control
in some developing countries. Furthermore, since it is only sprayed indoors
it is unlikely to cause any environmental problem at all, and will save
thousands of lives. (Occasional Paper No. 7)
