Implementation Strategies

We assist particularly vulnerable developing countries in streamlining climate plans into national development strategies, hence improving effectiveness of implementation and fundability of their projects.

In order to assist developing countries particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, Climate Analytics assist in streamlining climate plans into national development strategies, hence improving effectiveness of implementation and fundability of such projects at regional and national level.

Our team involved in the implementation strategies has wide range of experience on facilitation of national and regional climate change processes, including capacity building activities targeted for government and other stakeholders.

Strategies to recover economically from the COVID-19 crisis need to set us on track towards meeting the Paris Agreement climate goals, attendees of the Placencia Ambition Forum heard during the event organised by the Alliance of Small Island Developing States.  
To keep warming within the Paris Agreement's 1.5°C limit, in 2020 governments need to increase their climate targets to result in emissions at least 50% lower in 2030 than the levels implied by their current set of Paris Agreement pledges. All governments must act for the best chance to keep global warming within the safer limit, but plummeting costs of renewables make this transformational change possible, according to a new Climate Analytics report released on the first day of the UN Climate Summit in Madrid.  
The nation’s capacity to access more climate finance has been boosted with the formal launch of Jamaica’s first Country Programme for engagement with the Green Climate Fund (GCF). The Country Programme, which was prepared with financing from the GCF Readiness and Preparatory Support Programme, with support from Climate Analytics Inc., a non-profit climate science and policy institute, will provide strategic guidance on the key project proposals that are considered quick wins for climate investment over the next two years.  
Government budgets and green funds provided at least US$26 million to help ill-equipped ministries deliver carbon-cutting pledges towards last year’s Paris Agreement. The findings highlight the scale of assistance offered to ensure a maximum amount of intended nationally determined contributions (INDCs), which formed the backbone of the UN deal.  
PANOS Caribbean, together with Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES), will today launch a two-day climate change workshop geared at helping to advance the interests of Caribbean small-island developing states.The workshop, which is to see the participation of some 12 journalists and eight artistes from the region, is being held in St Lucia, ahead of this year's international climate talks set for Paris, France in December. The workshop - done with co-financing from Climate Analytics, the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States and the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre - forms a part of a larger Panos project for which they continue to fundraise.

ISIpedia recently published a study that assesses the current needs of climate services in West Africa and provides implications for development of future climate services, in conjunction with CLIMAP, a Senegalese initiative that will provide climate projections designed especially for the agriculture sector. The results were drawn from two different surveys conducted by the two initiatives with the aim of understanding the state of climate service use in the region and identifying design principles for effective climate services.  
Theory of Change (ToC) has become a common buzzword in climate adaptation circles in recent years. As a growing number of donors and financing entities require theories of change it can feel like yet another hoop to jump through, especially for Small Island Developing States (SIDS) where resources are limited and staff are often over-stretched. So why should busy adaptation practitioners respond positively to ToC and why does it matter? And what does ToC mean anyway, and how do you start developing one?  

Projects

All governments which ratified the Paris Agreement are required to produce a new round of climate action plans, or Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), in 2020, as part of their commitment to achieve its objectives. Contributing to this process, Climate Analytics has conducted studies exploring the link between forest governance in the Congo Basin countries and the NDCs.  
The Regional Climate Champion Project is an initiative undertaken by Climate Analytics gGmbH in partnership with regional stakeholders. The project’s focus is on building a regional coalition for ambition for implementation of the Paris Agreement.  
The EmBARK-project investigates time scales and possible trajectories of socio-economic transformation processes and analyse their relevance as potential barriers to adaptation to climate change. An improved understanding of the temporal dynamics of such barriers is key in developing a more realistic understanding of future climate impacts and for scientifically robust assessment of future climate related loss and damage.  
The "Climate Action Tracker" is an independent science-based assessment, which tracks the emission commitments and actions of countries.  
COP21 Results and Implications for Pathways and Policies for Low Emissions European Societies The Paris Agreement represents an important new strategic context for EU climate policy. Analysing the implications of this new context requires an interdisciplinary approach, combining analysis of the evolution of the international climate regime as well as of NDCs and their socio-economic implications.
