(…) Climate change will have a significant impact on the BRICS. Conversely, the expected impact of the BRICS on climate change is considerable. The size and rate of growth of the BRICS’s economies, of their energy demand, of their energy imports (for instance, in the case of China and India), and of their atmospheric emissions of various types make these countries essential major partners in any regional or global discussions relating to climate change or the production and consumption of energy…
This WWF/WRI report documents the challenges and solutions to scaling up renewable energy in China, India, Germany, Morocco, Philippines, South Africa and Spain.
