Abstract:This thesis examines three approaches to development. The first approach, Official Development Aid, is analyzed with a specific focus on the distributional effects: who ends up benefitting? Next, it examines whether Foreign Direct Investments can lead to development. It examines two cases of agricultural investments, or large-scale land acquisitions. Finally, this thesis examines how the creation of protected areas can contribute to development and environmental protection.
