Climate change

We have been addressing the issues related to climate change since 2007. We are co-authors of the official guidelines on integrating climate change and biodiversity in EIA and SEA, which were issued by the European Commission in 2013. We have extensive practical experience in the coordination and elaboration of National Communications to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. We are currently engaged in several countries in designing national systems for accessing financial support from the global Green Climate Fund. We assist in the planning and evaluation of adaptation measures, as well as carrying out assessments of the risks associated with climate change. We prepared guidelines for the preparation of adaptation action plans and we currently organize a National Climate Change Adaptation Award in the Czech Republic.
