Climate mainstreaming

We mainstream climate considerations across the project lifecycle to achieve positive climate impact across sectors. We are experts in integrating ICF indicators into project portfolios and work with our clients to design and implement climate-smart indicators to results frameworks.

Sustainable water & wastewater management

We manage water and wastewater planning across the hydrological cycle. Our work spans resource development, flood studies and protection, risk assessments, planning and design for water infrastructure investments, management assistance to utilities and institutional capacity building.

Natural resources and biodiversity

We work with the private and public sectors and civil society to improve natural resource management, conserve biodiversity and enhance regional, national and local resiliency. We support communities to manage and ensure sustainable use of their natural resources while conserving biodiversity for future generations.

Transition to clean energy

We work with our clients to develop policies and programmes that help make low carbon green growth an essential part of their economies and broader development frameworks. Our technical assistance ensures they have the institutional, technical and human capacity for a just transition.

Monitoring, evaluation, research & learning

Our in-house teams ensure that climate change and adaptation programmes are effective – and that future programmes are informed by evidence gathered through effective monitoring and evaluation systems. We have extensive experience devising high quality and tailored systems that feed into learning.

Climate governance

We work to address the institutional factors that affect how governments, countries, institutions and civil societies take action against climate change, making connections and seeking to resolve blockages. We carry out climate-focused political economy analyses to understand the power dynamics involved in a country’s approach to climate change.
