Climate Change

IGES seeks to promote a transition to a climate-resilient future by advancing the development of mitigation and adaptation initiatives aligned with international negotiations and processes.
 
Climate change is an increasing threat at the local and global levels. We assist policymakers, local communities, businesses and investors to understand climate risks and future climate regimes based on sound science. Through our research activities on market mechanisms, mitigation and adaptation, we help various stakeholders co-design actions for localising climate-resilient societies.
