About the reports
China’s Low Carbon Future Offers Global Opportunities, by chinadialogue, the Low Carbon Innovation in China project and the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit, illustrates the dynamism of China’s low-carbon development and asks if China’s more ambitious approach to climate change could create incentives for other countries to move in a similar direction.
Hot Air: Climate negotiations and India, by India Climate Dialogue, traces the evolution of India’s climate policy and its stance at climate negotiations over the last few decades; how India has championed the cause of the developing world.
