Exploring how to accelerate the just transformation to net-zero emissions in China, Nigeria, India, Indonesia and Brazil.

Year: 2021 Current Project

  • Overview

    For ClimateWorks Foundation, we are developing a series of brief reports. They will identify opportunities in the political economies of China, Nigeria, India, Indonesia and Brazil to accelerate the transition to net-zero emissions. The countries currently account for 45% of the global population and 40% of greenhouse gas emissions.

    Building on Climate Strategies’ member and partner network, we will work with leading experts from the target countries to gather insights on where international financing can have the largest impact.
