Is the new ‘climate doctrine’ marking a turning point in Russian policy?
Climate Strategies Report
The ‘climate doctrine’ recently discussed and approved by the
Russian Cabinet could mark a shift in the thinking of the Russian
high-level policy-makers similar to that of the Stern review in the UK.
The costs of climate change were first time reported in the headlines,
and it was argued that mitigation policies would be good for the
Russian economy. But to re-enforce these positive Russian developments
they should be recognized internationally. This paper provides an
update on Russian climate policy following the Climate Strategies
‘East-West Investment’ project, which was completed last year.
