SEEN FROM THE SOUTH: A REVIEW OF NORWEGIAN CLIMATE POLICY 12/08

The aim of this report is to help us see the Norwegian climate policy in a global perspective. The rich, industrialised countries historically are responsible for the major share of the green house gas emissions causing climate change, but today’s poor countries will face the most serious impacts. The unjust nature of climate change must be reflected and compensated for in international climate change agreements and in the policies of rich countries. How is this reflected in Norwegian climate policy?
