Capacity According to the GDRs Framework
SEI Policy BriefAuthor(s): Kartha, S.
The Greenhouse Development Rights framework (GDRs), devised by SEI and Ecoequity, is a climate framework designed to support an emergency climate stabilization programme while, at the same time, preserving the rights of all people to a dignified level of sustainable human development free of the privations of poverty. GDRs offers solutions to the climate crisis while supporting development in the South.
Key Findings include:
- free up sufficient environmental space for the poorer countries to develop by driving ambitious domestic emission reductions
- provide technological and financial support to enable development in poorer countries to occur along a decarbonised path.
