Our services

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:
 
National adaptation planning

  • Identifying and prioritising climate vulnerabilities, risks, and adaptation options and assessing co-benefits and trade-offs to support countries’ national adaptation plan (NAP) processes.

  • Linking NAP processes to NDCs, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Convention on Biological Diversity, and the Sendai Framework.

  • Developing climate adaptation elements of Long-Term Low Greenhouse Gas Emission Development Strategies (LTS).

National programme design, support, and harmonisation of funding

  • Scoping, feasibility analysis, programme design and cost-benefit analyses.

  • Developing costed implementation plans for adaptation actions, associated finance strategies and institutional arrangements.

  • Facilitating convergence and coordination of funding.

  • Programme reviews.

Sub-national adaptation planning

  • Identifying and prioritising climate vulnerabilities, risks, and adaptation options and assessing co-benefits and trade-offs, including for the development of cities’ Climate Action Plans.

  • Advising on urban environmental governance, peer-to-peer learning from city networks and smart cities.

  • Supporting vertical integration of subnational and national adaptation planning.

Policy development

  • Supporting the development of climate adaptation policies and strategies, including through undertaking formal impact assessments.

  • Supporting mainstreaming of climate adaptation in legislation, regulation, statutory guidance and standards, national or sectoral policies and strategies, and incentives.

Monitoring, evaluation and reporting

  • Supporting the evaluation of  climate adaptation policies, strategies and programmes.

  • Developing policy, programme and technical monitoring and evaluation frameworks and associated indicators.

  • Compiling Adaptation Communications.
