The Global Commission on the Economy and Climate
One of the most urgent challenges facing countries across the world today is how to achieve economic prosperity and development while also combating climate change.
The Global Commission on the Economy and Climate, and its flagship project, The New Climate Economy, have been set up to help governments, businesses and society make better-informed decisions on these crucial issues.
The Commission brings together expert research institutes from five continents, overseen by an International Council comprising former heads of government and finance ministers and leaders in the fields of economics, business and finance. Reporting in September 2014, the project will make recommendations on the policies that can simultaneously deliver better economic growth and address the risks posed by climate change.
