Evidence on Climate Compatible Growth [Closed]

Climate Compatible Growth is supporting preparations for the UNFCCC climate change summit (COP26), which will be held in Glasgow in November 2021. CCG has been asked by the COP26 unit in the UK government’s Cabinet Office to assemble and synthesize academic evidence on eight priority topics on clean energy transitions and climate compatible growth. This evidence will contribute to discussions with low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) as well as CCG’s future research priorities. Papers will be published in open access Elsevier journals, with fees paid by the programme. Authors will need to submit a shorter briefing paper for a policy audience, so as to have an impact on preparations for COP26. LMIC researchers are particularly invited to submit.
