Climate change mitigation policies: opportunities and challenges for exporters from low-income countries

This working paper explores the potential new trade opportunities and challenges that climate change mitigation policies adopted primarily in developed countries may create for exporters in Low Income Countries (LICs). It forms part of a larger program of work being undertaken at ODI to assess the effect of climate change and natural resource scarcity on the competitiveness of businesses in low income countries. It also builds on previous studies which include Ellis et al (2010) where various scenarios were identified regarding the potential future climate change regime; in addition to Keane et al (2010) where synergies and potential clashes between the trade and climate change regimes were outlined.
