"This valuable book once and for all dispels the myth that developing countries are unwilling to take action to confront climate change. By disentangling the complex motivations and incentives facing policy-makers, and the obstacles they face, this is important reading for all who want to understand how all countries can be encouraged to become part of the solution to climate change."
Andrew Steer, World Resources Institute
"This is a book of considerable value not only to governments and other stakeholders in the developing world, but to others across the globe as well. The principle of 'common but differentiated responsibility' really needs considerable analysis and interpretation for application in different parts of the world. This book very ably reviews global developments and developing country initiatives to highlight the choices, opportunities and challenges facing the developing world in the field of climate governance. Given the very readable material presented in these pages, I would recommend this piece of literature to anyone interested in climate issues across the globe."
Rajendra K. Pachauri, Yale University
"The large developing countries are essential to the global effort on climate change. This book by people with deep expertise in each country tells us with authority what they are doing and how. High quality work on an important subject."
Ross Garnaut, University of Melbourne
"This volume is a thoroughly readable and utterly fascinating practical attempt to map climate governance in a set of important developing countries. It takes a significant step towards filling a sizeable, even cavernous, research gap."
