Pioneers of Change: 21 Good Practices for Sustainable Low Carbon Development in Developing Countries

This publication has been created within the framework of the project "Exploring Sustainable Low Carbon Development Pathways". Based on 21 studies from different developing countries and economic sectors, it shows that climate protection and poverty reduction are not necessarily in competition, but that they can be combined. At the same time, the authors illustrate the challenges that exist on the path to sustainable development models and those on the agenda at the UN climate summit in Paris, and they outline sustainable policy approaches for an equitable socio-ecological transformation. 21 years of climate negotiations – 21 examples of good practice that encourage and show that a just, socioecological transformation is possible, despite significant opposition.
