Climate Change Adaptation
OIKO delivers climate adaptation solutions around climate-resilient development and sustainable livelihoods in the face of climate change.
OIKO has provided in-depth research and analysis to private clients and Governments to formulate National Climate Adaptation Strategies to integrate climate-related risks and opportunities into projects, programs, national planning and poverty reduction, while addressing the needs of the most vulnerable groups.
Our work focuses on analyzing and understanding the effects of climate change on livelihood realities and development perspectives of especially vulnerable population groups. We conduct climate Impact and vulnerability assessments providing information and advice for the identification of adaptation requirements as well as analyses of potential loss and damage. Our work extends from conducting Disaster Risk Assessment, creating information platforms for Early Warning Systems, formulating National Adaptation Strategies and Policies, or using Earth Observation technology to conduct spatial analysis.
We use Earth Science technology to improve the quality of life in our world, especially the economic livelihood opportunities of the world's most vulnerable populations and the sustainable use of the natural resources of our planet. Our work is divided in six main program areas- Climate Adaptation, Climate Mitigation, Ecosystems, Natural Resources, Poverty & Livelihoods and Climate Services.
