  • Growing green: the economic benefits of climate action

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    The economic impacts of climate change already threaten development gains; unchecked emissions will come at rising economic cost and increasing risk to individuals. This report argues that there is a clear case for all economies to move to a low carbon growth path, but climate action has, so far, been inadequate, especially in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (ECA). It identifies the actions that governments in the region can take to reduce the carbon footprints of their economies.

The study also compared three R&D investment strategies: (1) gradual TFP increase, (2) accelerated TFP increase, and (3) developing-countries-only TFP increase.
