Green economic policies are not immune to corrupt practices. While corruption can undermine the implementation of a 'green agenda', green policies can themselves also be instrumented for corrupt purposes. Reflecting on the small but growing literature on the ‘green resource curse’, this chapter confirms that increased financing for green initiatives threatens to replicate problems in the extractive industries. The struggles of indigenous communities suggest that the antidote to a green resource curse in Kenya does not simply rely on supporting improved governance and the rule of law but depends too on locally rooted movements for environmental justice.
