Climate Change Mitigation
Climate change mitigation refers to the efforts made to reduce or prevent emission of greenhouse gases. Mitigation can mean using new technologies and renewable energies, making older equipment more energy efficient or changing management practices or consumer behaviour.
OIKO provides analysis and advice to international organizations and leading multinational firms about rational options to reduce greenhouse-gas emission necessary to achieve long-term 2030 global climate goals set in the Paris Agreement.
Our work strides analyzing scenarios of climate smart technologies and developing applications to control emissions from energy-economic and agriculture models associated with mitigation costs and technology portfolios.
OIKO has helped Government Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) formulating projects to decrease the CO2 emissions by creating incentives for forest protection, while preserving livelihoods and ecosystems depending on the forests.
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.
