Global financial & climate crises 10 December 2008: The World Bank released a new report entitled “Low Carbon, High Growth: Latin American Responses to Climate Change.” The study argues that a shift towards low carbon activities could enhance the region’s competitiveness and contribute to a faster recovery from the current economic meltdown.

It highlights Latin America’s potential to lead middle income

transforming urban transport.
The study further explores how the
region is exposed to climate change and what it can do to avoid its

to be negotiated in 2009 at the UN Climate Change Conference in
Copenhagen. [The Report]
