This paper aims to provide a review of the organisations and governments involved in supporting other countries to reform their fossil fuel subsidies and the approaches being undertaken.

The multilateral climate funds (MCFs) are one example of how climate finance is being deployed to mobilise private investment. Many of these funds have an explicit goal of engaging the private sector, in part by attracting private finance to MCF investments.

This study examines recent documented experiences of biofuel projects to determine whether biofuel production in low-income countries (LICs) reduces food production and food security in the areas in which they are established.

The world is on the cusp of agreeing new global goals to succeed the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as we approach the 2015 deadline for their achievement.

Should the world go on a diet in 2014? There has been a dramatic increase in the numbers of overweight or obese people in the past 30 years. Previously considered a problem in richer countries, the biggest rises are in middle income countries and the developing world.

Fossil fuel subsidies undermine international efforts to avert dangerous climate change and represent a drain on national budgets. They also fail in one of their core objectives: to benefit the poorest. Phasing out fossil fuel subsidies would create a win-win scenario.

This report examines the relationship between disasters and poverty. It concludes that, without concerted action, there could be up to 325 million extremely poor people living in the 49 countries most exposed to the full range of natural hazards and climate extremes in 2030.

The monsoon wind, which brings rainfall during a year, is an important weather phenomenon in India. This publication describes the impact of monsoon aberration on agriculture, and provides information on options available for managing agricultural droughts in India.

This paper highlights the implications of the current separation of the discourses on private climate finance (PCF) and on subsidies, and the opportunities that exist to unlock climate-compatible investment by linking these fields.

This working paper explores the potential new trade opportunities and challenges that climate change mitigation policies adopted primarily in developed countries may create for exporters in Low Income Countries (LICs).
