Low Carbon Development Strategies: A primer on framing nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) in Developing CountriesUNEP Risø Centre on Energy, Climate and Sustainable Development, 2011UNEP and UNEP Risø Centre are engaged in providing financial and technical support to a number of countries working on Low Carbon Development Strategies (LCDS) and piloting Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs).DocumentClimate and Development Knowledge Network, 2014Shifting the global economy onto a 2°C trajectory implies a rapid shift of existing investment patterns and far reaching transformation in technology, infrastructure and practises, including the adoption of new financing and business models.DocumentChinese Academy for Environmental Planning, 2010Carbon tax was an effective policy tool to cope with the climate change and promote energy saving and emission reduction. A Computable General Equilibrium Model was set up to simulate the influence of levy carbon tax on China's macro-economy, energy saving and CO2 emission reduction. The results suggest that low rate carbon tax was a feasible option in China's near future.DocumentWorld Wildlife Fund, India, 2014This report argues that India can achieve a low-carbon development pathway, with appropriate policies being implemented, without significantly decreasing development ambitions.DocumentOverseas Development Institute, 2013This analysis of Kenya’s Vision 2030 initiative suggests that over the next decade, global trade patterns will be transformed by climate change, international mitigation, and natural-resource scarcity, resulting in an inevitable shift over time to a low-carbon global economy. This report has a particular focus on the energy, agriculture and manufacturing sectors.DocumentCentre for Alternative Technology, 2013This report explores how Britain can achieve Carbon neutrality. Building upon the groundwork laid by the Zero Carbon Britain project over the last six years, the authors incorporate the latest developments in science and technology, plus more detailed research in two main areas: balancing highly variable energy supply and demand; and the nutritional implications of a low carbon diet.DocumentAsian Development Bank, 2013The Asian Development Outlook 2013 provides a comprehensive economic analysis at both regional- and country-levels. It begins by outlining the economic status of the region before examining the goals, challenges and strategies of stakeholders with regard to present and future energy demand and supply. Finally it profiles the economic trends and prospects of over 30 countries.DocumentClimate and Development Knowledge Network, 2013India, recognising the challenge of pursuing economic growth in a sustainable manner, has developed an energy efficiency scheme to govern large energy consumers.DocumentUnited Nations [UN] Environment Programme, 2012The movement towards a green economy is seen as a critical pathway to achieving sustainable development. More importantly, it is an opportunity for investments in green industries, job creation and improvements in human welfare.Document
Plugging the energy efficiency gap with climate finance: the role of international financial institutions (IFIs) and the Green Climate Fund to realise the potential of energy efficiency in developing countriesInternational Energy Agency, 2012Energy consumption is growing in developing countries at a great pace and improvements in energy efficiency (EE) could provide opportunity for economic growth while providing broader access to energy and related services even from limited energy resources. This report underlines that moving the developing world towards a low carbon economy requires a scaling up of financing for EE.
