Abstract

Climate change has highlighted tensions that exist between development and its externalities. We need a pathway that delivers the socioeconomic progress and poverty alleviation—essential for developing countries—while minimising negative impacts on current and future generations. Current global frameworks for emissions reductions—while useful in harmonising action, require tailoring for developing country cities. Otherwise, we risk substantial urban emission inequity.
