World Development Report 2010: Development and Climate Change
The World Development Report 2010, published in September 2009 by the World Bank, explores how public policy can change to better help people cope with new or worsened risks, how land and water management must adapt to better protect a threatened natural environment while feeding an expanding and more prosperous population, and how energy systems will need to be transformed. The authors examine how to integrate development realities into climate policy in international agreements, in instruments to generate carbon finance, and in steps to promote innovation and the diffusion of new technologies.
