A Proposal for a Consultative Group for Low Emissions Development

July 2011

Interest in low emissions development is growing in many parts of the world for both climate and non-climate reasons, yet gaps in knowledge and implementation capacity are evident. In a new discussion paper for Resources for the Future, Nigel Purvis and Abigail Jones call for the creation of a semiformal international coordinating entity to enrich country-specific low emissions development activities by building knowledge and capacity as well as enhancing the scale and predictability of funds.
