policies are often allowed to gravitate toward cheap- er, high-carbon solutions. International policy debates are not yet driven by the proposed new notion of low-carbon develop- ment. Climate change mitigation tends to be the driver in the policy agenda and is heavily influenced by economic interest. True change will ultimately depend on real compromises and a change in val- ues. A change in values is needed in the global com- munity. Those engaged in international assistance will need to engage in and spearhead this process, in recipient countries and at home. 94 GLOBELICS THEMATIC REVIEW

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
