Greenhouse Development Rights


Posted in GDRs per se by tathanasiou on February 13, 2008

This blog, which is just stumbling into life, is intended for public discussion of the Greenhouse Development Rights Framework — aka GDRs.

The Greenhouse Development Rights framework is designed to support an emergency climate stabilization program while, at the same time, preserving the right of all people to reach a dignified level of sustainable human development free of the privations of poverty. More specifically, the GDRs framework quantifies national responsibility and capacity with the goal of providing a coherent, principle-based way to think about national obligations to pay for both mitigation and adaptation.

The official GDRs homepage is hosted by EcoEquity here — check it out. For those speaking German, there is also some information on the pages of the Heinrich Böll Stiftung.

Most of the people who blog here will be “Friends of Greenhouse Development Rights.” But perhaps not all?

Cheers, toma
