This Working Paper analyses opportunities and threats for low-income countries, and the business case for low carbon investment.
The study sets out to answer the following questions:
- How will climate change, international mitigation, and scarcity of natural resources affect trade opportunities and the competitiveness of the most important economic sectors in low-income countries?
- How can policymakers and businesses in those countries best respond to the opportunities and threats identified?
- When do these three competitiveness-related drivers create a business case for low carbon investment, and when do they create a trade-off? What are the implications for policy?
