In recent years, the international climate and development agenda have increasingly been discussed jointly. This discussion paper aims to outline the issues that surround the two agendas. It gives a brief history of the development debate, and its relations to the international climate negotiations, and investigates actual interactions, including synergies and discrepancies. The paper concludes with a list of questions, i.e. whether there is a strong enough rationale for further merging the agendas, and second, for those areas where merging seems appropriate, how this could happen.
