Emission accounts in the developing world

Developing countries are responsible for more than 60% of global carbon emissions. They are fast-growing and playing a more and more important role in the global supply chains. Understanding their emission trends and patterns are crucial to global climate change mitigation and low-carbon transition.

Our project focuses on the fast-growing developing countries and transition economies (e.g., China, African countries and India) and discusses how they contribute to the global emissions and global climate change mitigation.
