The financial collapse of a project by UK-based Sun Biofuels shows how the development dream can quickly turn into a nightmare for local people. Land and water resources that had been held collectively is now fenced off from villagers while the promises of infrastructure, jobs and better life never materialized. Redeye host Lorraine Chisholm speaks with Frederic Mousseau, policy director at the Oakland Institute.
