Description

The Global Commission on the Economy and Climate is a major new international project to analyse and communicate the economic risks and opportunities which arise from climate change, and to make recommendations to the world’s governments, business and finance leaders on actions that will lead to lower carbon and more climate-resilient patterns of economic growth and development. Commissioned by a group of seven countries (Colombia, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Korea, Norway, Sweden and the UK), the initiative is overseen by an International Council comprising former heads of government and finance ministers and leaders in the fields of economics, business and finance, chaired by former Mexican President Felipe Calderon. The project will report in September 2014.

The project will be conducted by a world class team of economists and policy and business analysts drawn from, and supported by, a partnership of eight leading global economic and policy institutions: the Climate Policy Initiative, Ethiopian Development Research Institute, Global Green Growth Institute, Indian Council on International Economic Relations, Stockholm Environment Institute, Tsinghua University and World Resources Institute. A range of other institutions will be invited to participate in aspects of the research program, including the World Bank and regional development banks, the International Monetary Fund, International Energy Agency and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. An advisory group of leading economists from developed and developing countries will be convened to carry out an expert review of the work.
