Towards a Global Green Recovery

Here is a new report put out by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and the London School of Economics and Politics's Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment.

It is called 'Towards a Global Green Recovery - Recommendations for Immediate G20 Action'. It was jointly written by a team led by Ottmar Edenhofer and Nick Stern.

The report highlights key measures in seven strategic areas that G20 members can take to tackle the economic crisis and re-orient development towards sustainable, low-carbon growth.

The seven areas are:
  1. Improve energy efficiency
  2. Upgrade physical infrastructure
  3. Support clean-technology markets
  4. Initiate flagship projects
  5. Enhance international R&D
  6. Incentivise investment
  7. Co-ordinate G20 efforts

Well worth a look. The full report is available for download at:
