Development Matters - How to achieve development in a carbon constrained world? Wed, 2014-05-07 18:40

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. Among other effects, climate change is a major threat to human health. As a result, we live in a carbon constrained world. Emissions targets set at the multilateral level and high price of oil impose constraints on development, particularly severe for developing countries.
