Tackling climate change requires a rapid shift to low-carbon development.

Rapid reductions in greenhouse gas emissions must take place in the immediate future if we are to minimize the adverse effects of climate change on our economic, social and natural systems. Achieving this goal requires putting in place practical, progressive low-emission development strategies that promote integrated clean energy solutions and broader sustainable development objectives.

Our experts help policy-makers identify and prioritize options for reducing emissions, such as through developing clean and renewable energy systems. We also support developing countries in identifying and accessing financing for low-carbon development. We do this by developing roadmaps for reform, engaging proactively with policy-makers and the stakeholders they engage with, providing quantitative and qualitative analysis of policy options for energy and carbon mitigation, and identifying means of implementation.
