Policies pursued by developing countries will be crucial in determining what happens to the Earth's climate. Many are industrializing rapidly and could have an impact at least as significant as that of the already industrialized economies. In the pursuit of a common platform for worldwide climate change mitigation, a global agreement, involving fair burden sharing and international collaboration, is essential. Yet this is only possible through joint sustainable development and climate change policies.

Climate Change and Sustainable Development develops a pragmatic framework for evaluating the climate change options faced by any developing country, including case studies from Africa and Asia, depending on their individual circumstances. It assesses present evaluation methods, suggesting ways in which these might be improved, and proposes ways in which social and developmental aspects can be more fully taken into account. It makes a substantial contribution to the practical, effecive analysis of climate change mitigation options in developing countries.

This book will be invaluable to the professionals, governments, international organizations and environmental groups working on climate change issues, and to researchers, academics and students in economics, environmental and development studies and international affairs.
