Adapting to climate change for a more resilient future
Global temperatures will continue to rise even if countries deliver on their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) to the Paris Agreement. Extreme events resulting from climate change are already occurring and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change states that it is “virtually certain” that their magnitude and frequency will increase. Hence, there is not only an urgent need for climate mitigation but also for climate adaptation.
Ricardo has considerable and wide-ranging experience of supporting international and bilateral development partners, the European Commission, national, subnational and local governmental bodies, and the private sector in relation to all aspects of climate adaptation planning, policy development, and implementation. This includes consideration of co-benefits and trade-offs between climate adaptation and mitigation, and links between climate adaptation, sustainable development, biodiversity, and disaster risk reduction and management.
Drawing upon Ricardo’s in-depth knowledge of science, policy and practice across many sectors, we develop and implement multidisciplinary services, with international, national, and local partners, often through extensive stakeholder engagement, regarding:
