GLRPPR Sector Resource: Emerging Economies: How the developing world is starting a new era of climate change leadership

Title:
Emerging Economies: How the developing world is starting a new era of climate change leadership

Abstract:
This report examines emissions trends and climate action plans for five of the world's largest developing economies -- Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa. It finds that overall these key emerging economies are acting with greater determination, ambition and energy than several countries in the developed world. But emerging economies could also do more to stave off the worst potential impacts of climate change and the report outlines for each country what the next moves could be.
