Climate Compatible Growth
The Climate Compatible Growth (CCG) programme is funded by the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) to support investment in sustainable energy and transport systems to meet development priorities in the Global South.
CCG provides research and global public goods. These are to help countries develop economic strategies, plans, and policies to attract investment into low-carbon growth opportunities across multiple sectors. These are to support growth aspirations and better meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
The programme brings together some of the UK’s leading research organisations and partners them with local researchers, governments, Multinational Banks (MDBs), and International Organizations (IOs) to identify appropriate low-carbon development pathways. This includes assessing the most fit-for-purpose policy, regulatory, market models, and risk mitigation options to implement them. The programme and its partners will develop a range of open source tools, models, and datasets that will be global public goods available to all countries.
The long-term aims of CCG are closely aligned with the aims of the COP26 Energy and Transport campaigns to accelerate the low-carbon transition.
