Abstract

Sustainable development is one of the most challenging goals for mankind and transition towards a greener economy is becoming a major driver on the global development agenda. Climate change requires urgent actions, considering impacts already being felt, with more droughts, floods, strong storms and other climate-related stresses that may draw resources away from development, posing increasingly severe pressures to all nations. Reducing modern society´s carbon footprints without jeopardizing development prospects will depend on intense cooperation, in addition to stable policies and incentives. The transboundary nature of these challenges imposes a new vision of interaction and alignment of efforts and no country will be able to face the emerging problems working in isolation. There is already a consensus that strong emphasis on cooperation, coupled with intensive investments in science, technology and innovation will provide the safest route to a lower carbon path to development in the future.
