The threat of climate change can only be averted with genuine cooperation between traditional and emerging powers. However, the profound changes in the economic and fiscal situations of the high-income countries, on one hand, and the rapidly-growing emerging powers such as India and China, on the other, have great implications for the potential for climate cooperation. In their new book, Greenprint: A New Approach to Cooperation on Climate Change, Aaditya Mattoo and Arvind Subramanian offer a new perspective on the climate change discourse. They outline the framework for the collaborative international effort needed to meet this challenge, calling for the big emerging market countries such as China, Brazil, and India to lead the charge for climate change action, as well as a renewed focus on innovation.
