    This report has addressed the issue of climate and development challenges head-on and provides some answers to the issue whether development can be used as a "scapegoat" for developing countries' argument towards lowering emissions.

    The report provides in part that there are two school of thoughts on the emissions issue - the "top-down" school focuses on the global challenge and what kind of emissions trajectories and targets for developing countries would be consistent with meeting the global warming challenge. The "bottom-up" school, which is the alternative argue that the concrete actions that are being undertaken by developing countries, for example, energy efficiency, pilot programmes in renewable energy, and afforestation projects will mitigate and balance the climate and development challenge.

    Combining the these two schools of thought show that the its is feasible to integrate the climate and development agendas and hence, China, India, Brazil and other developing countries should join the band wagon and save us all and from destroying the earth for future generations.

    The Report is attached below.
