Policy Studies on Greenhouse Gas Mitigation and Economic Development: Synergies and Challenges

Morgenstern, Richard D.
Oct 2004
This report builds on three sector-specific case studies commissioned by the IDB that examined opportunities for GHG mitigation in urban transport, landfill management, and forestry. The three selected studies have a strong potential in regards to their ability to illustrate the links between GHG mitigation and broader development objectives. The report concludes with a series of crosscutting observations that focus on the broad nexus between GHG abatement and economic development in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as the needs and opportunities for improved policy coordination and institutional strengthening.
