Climate Change, Sustainable Development and Cleantech envisions both global cleantech development and international cleantech transfer as crucial means to address climate change and secure sustainable development for planet earth. The book examines what it takes to attract foreign cleantech and encourage domestic cleantech innovation. The author proposes a pathway for developing countries that includes international aid, mutually beneficial international cleantech cooperation and domestic cleantech innovation.

Prior to becoming an academician, the author garnered over eighteen years practical experience as a software engineer and attorney at law. The author has drawn on this experience to examine empirical analysis of factual data such as global R&D data, global patenting data, international surveys concerning cleantech transfer and domestic cleantech innovation and proposes effective solutions to address climate change and achieve sustainable development.

This book's interdisciplinary and empirical-based analysis and recommendations will be most valuable to policymakers working in climate change, sustainable development, cleantech development or deployment, intellectual property and innovation policy.
Critical Acclaim
‘Technology development and transfer are vital to confronting the climate crisis, but the relationship between cleantech and intellectual property rights has too often been simply asserted or assumed. In this much-needed book, Professor Xiang applies rigorous and evidence-based analysis and advances fresh conclusions and a bold proposal for how to make progress.’
– Stephen Minas, UNFCCC Technology Executive Committee

‘This is a thoughtful, insightful and challenging contribution. It engages deeply and critically with scholarly, empirical and policy contributions from wide geographical bases. Xiang develops a proposal for enabling cleantech development and transfer both globally and locally, moving beyond a focus on transfer to developing countries, and this warrants serious consideration.’
– Abbe Brown, University of Aberdeen, UK
