A match made in heaven

The UN and North Korea cooperate on sustainable development:

Major crop yields fell by almost two thirds during the 1990s due to land degradation caused by loss of forest, droughts, floods and tidal waves, acidification due to over-use of chemicals, as well as shortages of fertiliser, farm machinery and oil.
Naturally, the failure had nothing to do with, you know, communism. But things are looking up for North Koreans and their environment:
Dr Toepfer said North Korea "has shown its willingness to engage with the global community to safeguard its environmental resources, and we must respond so it can meet development goals in a sustainable manner."
With a UN sustainable development team on the job how can they fail?

Ah to the policy cave Koffi-man, that OIL FOR FOOD was a good scam, surely we can best that with this whacko. Remember, this for our kids, so be creative.
