- DocumentWuppertal Institute, 2012The Durban conference decided to establish a new market based mechanism that is to cover a broad segment of a country’s economy. The question is, however, which developing countries would actually be able to implement such a mechanism. The introduction of the EU emission trading system highlighted the many challenges that even advanced developed countries face when establishing a carbon market.DocumentUnited Nations [UN] Environment Programme, 2012Cities are home to more than half the global population and are responsible for 60 to 80 per cent of energy use and more than 75 per cent of carbon emissions. This report examines how cities can better access climate finance through the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). It recommends reforming the existing CDM to allow for methodologies geared towards cities.DocumentECN, 2010Low carbon growth seeks to promote economic development while keeping emissions low, or lower. Although Ghana is not responsible for the greenhouse effect, low carbon growth can be beneficial to Ghana. In the short term, pursuing low carbon growth helps identify options that have direct economic and development benefits and can open access to international climate support.Document
The economics of low carbon, climate resilient patterns of growth in developing countries: a review of the evidenceStockholm Environment Institute, 2010This literature review assesses the extent to which developing countries can make the transition towards low or lower patterns of growth. It explores the potential impacts of climate change on economic growth and the investment needs for increasing growth resilience. The paper outlines the challenge of establishing patterns of low carbon growth and discusses the cost of greenhouse gas mitigation.DocumentUnited Nations [UN] Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, 2010The study establishes a macroeconomic scenario without climate change trend against which the cost of the phenomenon is measured. It uses "bottom up" impact analysis of key sectors and areas such as agriculture, water resources, extreme events and ecosystem services, making later an economic valuation as a function of GDP.DocumentLondon School of Economics, 2011The contribution of the least developed countries (LDCs) to the greenhouse gas problem is very small.Document
Low carbon green growth roadmap for Asia and the Pacific: turning resource constraints and the climate crisis into economic growth opportunitiesUnited Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, 2012In 2005, the concept of green growth was introduced in the Asia-Pacific region as a strategy for sustainable growth in developing countries. This roadmap, produced by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), is intended for the use of member states to help policymakers find win-win strategies for promoting growth and reducing carbon emissions.DocumentUnited Nations Research Institute for Social Development, 2012Rapid economic growth in India during the last two decades has accentuated the demand for energy and natural resources related to water, land and forests.DocumentUnited Nations [UN] Environment Programme, 2011Recognising the urgency of preparing for the impacts of climate change is essential for African policy makers. This guidebook aims to translate available climate science analysis and current international climate policies that can be implemented in Africa to advance sustainable development.
