A shift towards low-carbon, renewable energy sources is imperative if the worst impacts of climate change are to be avoided. Although Africa has contributed a relatively small proportion of historical carbon emissions, the continent must still play a role in transitioning to a sustainable, green economy.

This policy brief suggests that carbon pricing can accelerate the diffusion of lowcarbon technology in China, based on the results of empirical studies conducted by Kansai Research Centre of IGES focusing on China’s most energy intensive industries. Many low-carbon technologies are profitable but require some initial investment.

Investors with more than $15 trillion of assets under management urged governments led by the United States to implement the Paris climate accord to fight climate change despite U.S.

Results-based financing is a well-established financing modality in the health and education sectors but it is still in an early stage of deployment in the area of climate change.

This Climate Scorecard Report provides descriptions of climate change policies that have been put in place by the leading greenhouse gas emitting countries. These policies provide important insights on what each country is doing to reduce emissions and implement the Paris Agreement.

This policy brief is based on a roundtable discussion attended by representatives from the government, private financial sector, and research community on how the UK can capitalise on global opportunities for low-carbon goods and services, held in London in March 2017.

The Africa Climate Change Fund (ACCF) supports African countries in building their resilience to the negative impacts of climate change and transitioning to sustainable low-carbon growth.

Only eleven EU Member States delivered a 2050 emissions reduction strategy by 2015 as required by EU law - and the strategies that were submitted vary hugely in quality. These are the findings of this report from the EU LIFE-funded MaxiMiseR project from WWF’s European Policy Office.

According to the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, there is tremendous opportunity for collaboration between cities and the private sector to invest in sustainable projects, and also the need to accelerate investment and development in sustainable infrastructure in order to deliver a climate safe future.

Complete decarbonization of the electricity demand of Indian Railways (IR) – transitioning from the current, largely fossil-fuel based energy mix to clean energy like solar and wind power – is likely to have multiple benefits.
