Effects of transformations to climate-neutral societies on low- and middle-income countries
This is a Rapid Assessment Report for Sida and the network Swedish Leadership for Sustainable Development.
The report concludes that transformations to climate-neutral societies is more urgent than ever, and that business will have an increasingly large role to play. However, as shown by the case studies in the report, good intentions can lead to unintended consequences for sustainability and justice in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
A better understanding of interconnected social, technological, and ecological systems is crucial in order to navigate these attempts to transform in ways that can maximise positive outcomes for both people and planet along the complex global value chains of the modern market economy.
