The Economics of Low Carbon, Climate Resilient Patterns of Growth in Developing Countries: A Review of the Evidence
This study involved reviewing the evidence from the economics of climate change literature to assess the extent to which developing countries can move towards low, or lower, carbon patterns of growth, without compromising economic growth. In addition, the study explored the impact of climate change on economic growth, and the investment needs for increasing climate resilience to ensure continued economic growth in future years.
