The Greenhouse Development Rights framework - Climate Change

The Greenhouse Development Rights framework

In a world of global poverty and the threat of climate change – what action would be required to deliver human development, economic opportunity and dignity to poor people? The now published and updated Greenhouse Development Rights Framework argues that the best way to break the impasse between the climate and the development crisis is simply by expanding the climate protection agenda to include the protection of development dignity. The Greenhouse Development Rights Framework provides an interesting approach towards combining sustainability goals and development equity.
