Climate Change

Human-induced climate change is a pressing issue that is increasingly affecting our society and economy. Some of its most striking impacts are related to biodiversity loss, agriculture, infrastructure, trade, human health risks and migration. These effects are felt globally but especially by the most vulnerable developing countries mostly due to their lack of adaptive financial and technical capacities but also geographical position and lack of economic and governance resources. The international community has acknowledged this issue and is making increasing efforts to combat climate change and its adverse effects with sound mitigation and adaptation policies.

Since the establishment of Trinomics in October 2012, our climate change consultancy activities have expanded significantly, both in Europe and internationally. For that reason, the climate change advisory services of Trinomics are operated in strategic collaboration with Climatekos.

Trinomics provides consultancy expertise in climate change policy and strategy, particularly on the following four themes:

Climate Finance

Moving towards a low-carbon and climate-resilient economy requires enormous investments. Both public and private actors are increasingly investing and supporting climate-related programs and projects with the aim of reducing GHG emissions and adapting to the impacts of climate change. Our team has deep expertise in the mobilisation and shifting of finance towards climate-friendly investments. Trinomics Climate will be a leading consultancy on developingmethodologies for measuring public and private climate finance.

Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience

Adapting and building resilience to the adverse effects of climate change is arguably one of the most challenging and pressing issues of all time. There is a lot to be done in the near future to reduce vulnerability and design and implement effective adaptation measures to minimise climate change induced loss and damage. Trinomics Climate will offer outstanding research and advice on climate adaptation and resilience, such as proactive adaptation and disaster risk management.

Climate Change Mitigation

Climate change mitigation actions refer to efforts to reduce or prevent greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, for example by switching to new and low-carbon energy sources such as renewable energy, making older equipment more energy efficient, or changing management practices or consumer behaviour. Trinomics Climate has experience in mitigation project development and Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMA) services, as well as research and economic policy analysis around climate mitigation policy development and implementation.

Climate Change Policy and Strategy 

The pathway towards an agreement during the COP-21 in Paris is long and winding. A key concern is to accommodate the numerous approaches taken by countries towards setting and reaching their mitigation goals, both inside and outside the UNFCCC. Trinomics has experience in supporting national, European and international public sector institutions indesigning, developing and implementing their (international) climate policies and strategies. Trinomics also has practical implementation experience all around the globe, from advising developed countries on their national (or European) climate policy ambitions and targets to supporting developing countries in designing and implementing their climate-development projects.
