Trinomics assisting EEA with its efforts to further the discussions around domestic climate finance in Europe to reach the EU’s goal of transitioning to a low-carbon, climate-resilient society

The 2015 Paris Agreement has set an unprecedented worldwide agreement to tackle greenhouse gas emissions to limit the rate of global warming (mitigation), as well as at the same time to take measures that help prepare for current and future climate change impacts (adaptation). Both of these elements require unparalleled redirection of investments. Recognizing this,…
