Our areas of expertise:

Contact:

We provide scientific, policy and analytical support to assist Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs) in the UNFCCC, Green Climate Fund and related climate negotiations and fora. Based on the latest science, we provide on-demand technical, political, strategic and legal briefings and advice to negotiators, with the aim of supporting the establishment of an effective and legally binding multilateral climate regime. We also support other stakeholders, including international organisations, governments and NGOs.

Publications

Rules for the implementation of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement are still under negotiation at the international level. This report explores three key unresolved issues that are closely interrelated and that can considerably impact the global emissions outcome from using Article 6 as well as the amount of revenues generated to help meet the adaptation needs of particularly vulnerable developing countries.  

Projects

The Governance Initiative for the Caribbean (CGIC) aims to support the development of governance structures to allow equitable and just national climate action to implement the Paris Agreement in Caribbean countries.  
IMPACT is a cross-cutting, multi-faceted project that aims to strengthen the connections between the scientific assessments of climate impacts, vulnerability and adaptation to help enable access to finance and help Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs) implement concrete projects.
