The Urgency to Decarbonize
Climate change is the biggest challenge the planet faces today. It is impacting people’s lives which in turn is changing the world order leading to disruptions in the business as usual. While mitigation needs to be attended, there is an urgent need to take actions on reducing vulnerability of the humanity at large and communities in specific areas through adaptation. The investments and financial flows need to target both mitigation and adaptation actions to address climate hazards.
Trillions of dollars will need to be mobilized to develop and deploy low carbon and climate resilient solutions across every sector of the economy to achieve sustainable development. Increased financing from national governments, private sector, international organizations, and development partners are being directed towards combating climate change. However, the transition is hindered by gaps in technologies, infrastructure, policies, knowledge and capacity. We help devise innovative approaches and solutions for stakeholders to decarbonize the economies.
To facilitate sustainable development and transition to low-carbon future.
To create solutions to disrupt the constant phenomena of climate change and achieve green development.
Fill the capacity void on development, implementation and management of climate investment projects for low carbon development.
The CIS strives to create solutions based on deeper experience and wider knowledge of experts. While the financial allocations are not sufficient, a large number of projects are getting deployed from the financing already secured, but the project developers and implementers are facing challenges in devising innovative solutions to yield the climate change impacts. At CIS, we aim at translating the strategies into investments that deliver the climate impacts.
