Together alone: BASIC countries and the climate change conundrum

This report is the result of a year-long research project driven by a quest for better understanding on how the emerging BASIC powers – Brazil, South Africa, India and China – approach international climate negotiations as a group. These fast growing economies will contribute to an increasing amount of CO2 emissions, while at the same time partly reducing their CO2 emissions. This reduction will take place under comparatively progressive national climate policies and concrete measurable mitigation actions.
