‘Green’ growth and the new industrial revolution
The Grantham Research Institute is also supported by the Global Green Growth Institute (a treaty-based international organisation, with headquarters in Seoul, Korea) through a grant for US$2.16 million (£1.35 million) to fund several research project areas from 2012 to 2014.
This grant has supported work to understand better the link between environmental protection, growth and development. Its aim is to strengthen the analytical and empirical underpinnings of the ‘green growth’ concept in relation to both developing and developed countries.
- Macroeconomic issues: jobs, poverty and ‘green’ growth
- Studies of the impact of innovation and other climate-change policies
- Sources of growth and the role of policy: evidence from economic history
- Growth and adaptation to climate change
