The CD-LINKS project was exploring the complex interplay between climate action and development, while simultaneously taking both global and national perspectives and thereby informing the design of complementary climate-development policies. The CD-LINKS consortium brought together national and global integrated assessment modeling groups from Europe, China, India, Brazil, Russia, Japan and the USA as well as domain experts in the areas of human development, climate adaptation, economics, energy geo-politics, atmospheric chemistry, human health, land use, agriculture, and water. CD-LINKS has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 642147.
