Climate change affects every corner of our planet and every sector of development: health, agriculture, economic growth, energy, governance, migration, conflict and peace, and natural landscapes and resources. As one of the most urgent and intractable challenges of our time, climate change presents both a mandate and an opportunity for collaboration and innovation to support countries on their journeys toward inclusive, climate-resilient development and net zero emissions economies.
From adaptation to mitigation, Chemonics leverages decades of experience responding quickly to global challenges to work across every facet of development and its intersections with climate change in more than 85 countries.
We understand that climate change disproportionately affects the most vulnerable populations, who are often the least prepared to plan for unanticipated stresses. In our approach, we are committed to improving policies and decision-making based on empirical, science-informed climate information, while bolstering the capacity of communities to address climate vulnerabilities and risks and build more resilient livelihoods. Our projects and technical experts use customized tools and partner entities such as NASA, Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), and private sector organizations to capture and analyze data, with analytical results informing actionable solutions. This work helps local communities and partners adapt to the “new normal” while also tailoring and implementing appropriate mitigation approaches to best serve the needs of affected communities and address the root causes of climate change. Moreover, we understand the importance of
- Championing data-driven decision-making and policy reform based on comprehensive climate information
- Advancing natural climate solutions
- Curbing climate-induced migration and conflict
- Building sustainable value chains for improved food security and economic prosperity
Finally, we understand how critical it is to reduce our company’s impact on the climate, which means ongoing reviews and analysis of our approaches, facilities, procedures, and policies to implement a clear environmental sustainability policy and program that includes a commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions.
