This paper explores the 'confidence' that different groups have during environmental planning in Barbados. It shows how anxious donor agencies and Western consultants have been accused of projecting their vision of development onto the country. I examine how isolated environmental movements act unaccountably on behalf of a disengaged population. As a result, with the legacy of independence still in people's memories, the State of Barbados speaks with a certain amount of legitimacy when undertaking environmental planning.
