The global low carbon transition presents great opportunities for sustainable growth and alleviating energy poverty. It also presents new risks, as developing nations lack access to low carbon technology or capital at the necessary scale; and their position in rapidly recalibrating global supply and value chains might change. This panel explores the opportunities and risks facing countries in the Global South against the backdrop of the world embracing a low carbon future. Contributions to this panel will be both conceptual in nature and empirically-driven, and may look at single studies or adopt a comparative approach.
