John Asafu-Adjaye, School of Economics, The University of Queensland, shares his comments on the Climate Change workshop at the 2009 Global Development Network Conference, Kuwait, February 2009. He has some thoughts on the research agenda needed to inform the negotiating process, including what needs to happen for the developing countries to be enticed to participate. He mentions how, to date a majority of emissions have come from “developed” countries, but in the future the majority will come from currently “developing” countries, such as China and India.
