Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation: Through an understanding of local, regional, and global contexts, Chemonics has emerged as a leader in the application of cutting-edge science, socially inclusive methods, and scalable solutions for adaptation and landscape-based mitigation activities — from development of a global food security early warning system that allows governments to adapt to climate change to community certification systems that promote carbon sequestration credits through Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+).
Natural Resource Management: We have excelled at supporting policies, promoting new technologies, and using inclusive governance to conserve water, coastal areas, forests, and soil resources while protecting critical biodiversity and building sustainable local livelihoods.
Environmental Services: Chemonics ensures compliance with environmental regulations while promoting voluntary standards and incentive-based payment for environmental services that increase the competitiveness of businesses, promote finance for conservation and clean production, and strengthen shared responsibility toward the environment.
Environmental Management: We promote improved regulatory environmental compliance through assessments that provide environmental impact and auditing support while actively supporting clean production and pollution prevention technologies in numerous sectors, including agriculture, forestry, energy and water utilities, mining, manufacturing, and tourism.
Land and Resource Rights: Through our land governance programs, Chemonics has developed a deep understanding of the central role that secure tenure, clear resource rights, and equitable access to resources play in instilling a culture of responsible stewardship, in resolving conflict, and in promoting investment in conservation.
