Making the case for funding CCS in developing countries

Investment in carbon capture and storage (CCS) demonstration projects is needed now to facilitate widespread deployment in the future in order to achieve significant emissions cuts, and therefore contribute to avoiding catastrophic impacts of climate change on the world’s poor.

A new Institute report identifies the links between funding for CCS and the effect on development, a useful reference for donor countries considering funding CCS in developing countries. The report, Making the case for funding carbon capture and storage in developing countries, was published to support the Fourth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) meeting held in New Delhi 17-18 April 2013. CEM is a global forum for international collaboration on clean energy.
