Climate and Development

Head: Dr. Jan Steckel

The working group's research is driven by the question how climate change mitigation can be achieved without comprising poverty eradication and sustainable development. It explores the interrelation between sustainable development processes and climate change mitigation in three research foci: i) Carbonization patterns; ii) Structural change; iii) Infrastructure and Inequality.
