Promoting Development and Saving the Planet

 Rob Vos
  10th-Sep-2009
Description: Lower GHG emissions are necessary to protect the planet; rising living standards to meet development goals. Difficult to address separately; but together involve huge adjustments, particularly in developing economies; can’t be left to individual countries to manage alone. Transforming energy services is key; but series of large, interrelated investments needed to meet climate and development goals. Cannot rely on markets; need a revitalized public policy agenda: a global investment program.
