What We Do


In 2019, the World Economic Forum concluded that the top two global risks are related to extreme weather events, which may increase in frequency and magnitude owing to climate change and the failure to implement climate mitigation and adaptation measures. Africa, as is well-documented, is predicted to be the region most affected by climate change owing to a lack of adaptive capacity. Therefore, it is critical that the private sector organizations focused on providing expertise and sound advisory services to climate change decision makers do so in a responsible and rigorous manner.
