Development and Climate Change

Climate change and development

The Asia-Pacific region is home to a majority of the world’s population and is without doubt the world’s engine of economic growth and transformation. China and India have experienced a very rapid rate of economic growth and is a significant player in the climate change area from almost any perspective, including emissions, impacts and international negotiations. Australia has much in common with many developing countries in terms of climate change challenges, creating unique collaborative opportunities for interdisciplinary research between Australia and our international counterparts.
