The BRICSA countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) are likely to play key roles in deciding the type of climate agreement that follows Kyoto.

The pilot study, of the likely effects on South Africa, has just been completed by Jeremy Wakeford of South African New Economics and can be downloaded here. It will be used as a model for the remaining four reports.
