Post date: 24/07/2022 - 13:53
The World Bank Group has released its second »Country Climate and Development Report« (CCDR). Following the release of the first CCDR on Turkey at the end of June, the report on Vietnam has now been completed. The World Bank plans to publish more than 20 CCDRs in the coming months leading up to the 27th UN World Climate Change Conference (COP27) in Egypt next November.
The reports »build on rigorous data and research« and are intended identify the main climate change risks and opportunities for greenhouse gas reduction in each country, describing costs and barriers as well as benefits and opportunities. They are, as public documents, »aimed at informing governments, citizens, and development partners to engage with the development and climate agenda.« The reports are available for free download on a dedicated, continuously updated page (see link below).
