The New Climate Economy, a global partnership of research institutes has published its report, Better Growth, Better Climate: The New Climate Economy Report. A central focus of the report is on the role of cities and urbanisation as part of a new climate economy. This forms the core theme of the cities workstream, which is led by LSE Cities’ Graham Floater and Philipp Rode.
The report was produced by a Global Commission of leaders from government, business and finance, advised by leading economists and supported by major international organizations. While many organizations have produced reports on the science of climate change or the costs of denying it, this report shows that climate action is, in fact, compatible with strong economic growth.
