This new publication presents the low carbon development path for Asia and the Pacific. It shows that  this region must overcome several challenges to secure the growing energy requirements needed to maintain strong development trend while at the same time pursue a low carbon development path.

In the backdrop of an intensified debate on climate change and a wider consensus on finding action oriented solutions, the emphasis on carbon markets in any post-2012 climate policy agreement has become vital.

By the year 2050, the world will need to reduce its carbon intensity by around 88% if it hopes to limit climate change to 2°C of warming.  So concludes PwC’s Low Carbon Economy Index 2010, a report assessing the G20 countries’ achievements in reducing their carbon intensity levels—defined as the ratio of emissions to GDP—since 2000, and analysing the distance ea

The objective of this publication is to highlight the global and regional trends in urban development, identify key issues, projected risks, impacts and opportunities in the light of climate change through case study examples from cities in India and throughout the world.

This Policy briefing document highlights insights from research that undertook by examining low carbon energy technology transfer in India and China.

Low carbon technology transfer to developing countries has a central role to play in mitigating carbon emissions.
