The publication contributes to the understanding of how transformational change towards
low-carbon development has already taken place or is being planned in five developed and developing countries. Informed by theories of sustainability transitions, country experts from Brazil, Colombia, Denmark, Germany, and South Africa reflect on the dynamics and
challenges of processes of transformational change in the sub-sectors of wind power, renewable energy, deforestation, transport and state-owned companies.
The Perspectives 2015 publication is a result of collaboration between the NAMA Partnership Working Group on Sustainable Development (WG-SD) and the International Partnership on Mitigation and MRV. The objective of these partnerships is to enhance collaboration and the complementarity of activities by multilateral, bilateral and other organizations to accelerate support to developing countries in preparing and implementing their Low-Emission Development Strategies (LEDS), NAMAs, measuring, reporting and verification (MRV) systems and INDCs.
