Law suit and deal making. How US lobby firms tap into Norwegian aid
In the wake of a law suit in California, Oslo’s chief climate forest advisor, the Washington-based firm Climate Advisers, was forced to give away almost one-third of its USD 10 million portfolio financed by Norwegian aid. The contracts lost ended up with Waxman Strategies, led by the famous ex-US Congressman Henry Waxman. Norway continues to dish out multi-million dollar aid grants to US consultants, avoiding tenders by routing funds through NGOs, an investigation by Development Today shows.
