KISs @GIBS‘s insight:

Ackn. WRI – " …  On April 2, 2013 the IMF and WRI hosted a special event with Lord Nicholas Stern.  –    In the six-plus years of economic turbulence since the publication of the Stern Review, the risks from unmanaged climate change look substantially higher. Continued neglect will likely spur large movements of population and extended conflict.  We understand how to radically reduce these risks, yet the political will to act is weak. A key obstacle is the common but misguided perception that there is a stark conflict between growth and climate responsibility.

 

Lord Stern analysed how risks and understanding have changed in these last six years and argued that the transition to the low-carbon economy is full of opportunity for growth and poverty reduction."
