Self-interested low-carbon growth in Brazil, China and India

Date: 01 September 2012

This article examines the issue of whether low-carbon growth might be in the self-interest of Brazil, India, and China. These countries are the largest member countries of the G20 emerging markets (GEMs), and are also members of the BRIC and BASIC grouping of countries. Individually, they are very important to each other in different ways, not least in that emissions in one country have impacts on citizens in another. Combined, their growth and development trajectories over the next decade have important implications for both the long-term prosperity of their own people and those of others around the world.
