- Our report on the geography of poverty and disasters, released in October, highlights how extreme weather linked to climate change is increasing and will likely cause more disasters. Such disasters, especially those linked to drought, can be the most important cause of impoverishment, cancelling progress on poverty reduction.
- Our report on fossil fuel subsidies calls for governments to 'change the game' on fossil fuel subsidies, which now top half a trillion dollars globally and are creating perverse incentives favouring investment in carbon-intensive energy.
- Our report on climate finance assesses the state of funding to help developing countries mitigate against, and adapt to, the effects of climate change – and proposes a road map for climate finance to 2015. It is accompanied by 10 things to know about clmate finance in 2013 - an infographic presenting the state of the funds.
These three flagship reports (and the many other pieces of research ODI is releasing on climate change this November) aim to build global knowledge around the major issues of climate finance and the economics of climate change – and to build consensus on the way forward.
