The world's least developed countries (LDCs) must expand their transport, industrial, and agricultural sectors, but the resulting increase in carbon emissions will accelerate climate changes that disproportionately affect the poor. The authors address this dilemma, calling on developed countries to help LDCs adopt low-carbon technologies while also reducing poverty.
