Abstract

The CliMiP project aimed at analysing the relationship between climate change mitigation policies and poverty reduction combining detailed country-specific studies with broader comparative analyses. Starting point of the analysis was the lesson learned from the European experience in implementing emissions reduction policies and their impacts in terms of GDP, competitiveness, poverty within and outside the EU. The project then focused on the linkages between climate change mitigation and poverty in a number of developing countries, namely Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa and Thailand.

The Climate Change Mitigation and Poverty Reduction project is funded by Compagnia di San Paolo (Italy), Riksbanken Jubileumsfond (Sweden) and Volkswagen Stiftung (Germany) under the Programme “Europe and Global Challenges".

The aim of the policy workshop “CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION AND POVERTY REDUCTION: TRADE-OFFS OR WIN-WIN SITUATIONS?” is to present and discuss the main findings of the CliMiP project and its policy implications. In the aftermath of the Paris COP, the synergies and challenges linking climate change and development are becoming increasingly relevant. To date, this issue has been the most divisive within the UNFCCC, with struggles along a rift centring on ‘historical responsibilities’, the ‘right to emit’ and ‘fair global carbon shares’. More recently, however, both developed and developing countries have become aware of the need to jointly work for the implementation of effective strategies to tackle climate change without compromising future economic growth and poverty reduction priorities.

Given the political significance of the project’s topics we would like to actively involve a wide number of relevant experts, practitioners and policy makers to discuss the major implications of the project’s results.
