The assumption that climate mitigation can only be afforded at a particular level
of income is implicit in global climate negotiations. This suggests that
middle-income countries may reach a tipping point in their development
process where low-carbon investment becomes more viable. In order to avoid
dangerous levels of climate change, this tipping point needs to be brought
forward in time: upper-middle-income countries are already responsible for
37.8% of global CO2 emissions. We explore the scope for large-scale
investment in climate mitigation in Johor Bahru, a fast-growing industrial city
in Malaysia.
