Achieving global carbon neutrality together with economic development


UNCTAD Research Paper No. 81

This paper proposes a projection of macroeconomic and environmental conditions to 2030 in order to help clarify some of the likely major Economic and Environmental challenges facing Developing Economies in their efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

Using the United Nations Policy Model, the paper also assesses the dynamics and potential impact on Developing Economies of policy changes that could help the world to make substantial progress by 2040 in reaching the ambitious, but absolutely necessary, target of Zero Net Carbon Emissions by mid-century.
