TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. The U.N.’s agency for trade and development said that unless the international community and national governments actively tend to green tech industries in developing countries, the benefits associated with lower-emission technologies will be near inaccessible for many poorer nations in Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa.

VERBATIM: A U-N report says the majority of developing nations are set to miss out on the economic benefits of booming green technologies. That would slow progress toward their climate goals and widen the inequality gap between rich and poor countries. Electric vehicles, solar and wind energy and green hydrogen are projected to reach a market value of $2.1 trillion by 2030, four times higher than they’re worth today.
