ecbi Policy Analysis generates information and advice relevant to developing countries' concerns
in the UN climate change negotiations. Developing country negotiators consider ecbi Policy briefings
as relevant, timely, and trustworthy.
Due to the lack of economic and institutional capacity, policy analysis is in general not
produced by or for the poorer LDCs. ecbi works in close collaboration with policy makers in all
these countries in order to address specific national and regional issues on climate change.
One of the key constraints to the negotiating capacity of many developing countries in the UN
climate change negotiations is the lack of solid analysis and policy advice concerning the effects
of the issues being negotiated. The differences in analytic capacity with the industrialized world
are profound and institutionally manifest. The OECD, for instance, has an immense apparatus
producing thorough and focused reports, including direct advice on future policy responses to each
of the member countries in all relevant areas and social activities.
ecbi reports range from open, general briefings to more focused and confidential analyses at the
request of individual countries. The latter are critical in the formation of each party's strategy
in the global climate change negotiations.
