Climate Risk Management

Developing climate risk management frameworks for the private sector to make businesses resilient today and over time.
Utilising the latest climate change projections, Climalia has the capacity to evaluate the direct physical impacts, as well as the possible indirect effects, that trigger climate-related risk and affect companies’ most valuable assets and investment portfolios.  
Based on a detailed vulnerability and risk assessment, Climalia can identify possible adaptation options to help businesses increase their climate resilience, manage risk and take advantage of new opportunities that may arise from climate change. 
Mainstreaming adaptation into management systems: We are adept at identifying entry points within existing systems and standards for climate risk and resilience considerations. We frequently develop client-specific climate risk and resilience processes, with links to the asset management cycle. Roles of staff and support needs required for successful mainstreaming are clearly defined as part of the process.

Climate Policy Advice

Providing technical assistance and advice to governments and public officials on multilateral and regional frameworks about climate change, including UNFCCC negotiations.
Climalia focuses on transferring knowledge, expertise and capacity building to national officers, recognising the value of building sustainable and adequate in-country knowledge and skills.

Planning For Adaptation & Resilience

Supporting governments to reduce risks related to climate change, including coastal erosion, landslides, floods and heat-waves, and protect key socio-economic sectors such as agriculture, tourism, infrastructure and cultural heritage.
Climalia can help cities and local administrations develop strategic adaptation policies and plans to increase resilience and the adaptive capacity of key vulnerable areas.

Strategic Research

Building knowledge on climate change science, impacts, vulnerability and adaptation by fostering interdisciplinarity and sharing multiple expertise.
Climalia participates to internationally and nationally-funded research and applied projects aimed at creating a better-informed decision making and mainstreaming climate change into development and planning.

Training & Awareness Raising

Offering specialised training for targeted clients and mixed groups of beneficiaries.
Climalia highly skilled communicators and facilitators run ad-hoc sessions, international and regional workshops and consultations engaging a variety of stakeholders.
We have a range of approaches and tools available to build the adaptive capacity of our client’s staff, including workshops, small group exercises, interactive communication materials and online audio/visual media.

Resilience School - RENA

RENA Resilience School

Main objectives: 

Train more aware citizens and administrators to design the cities of today and tomorrow. A residential learning experience designed for people who want to take care of the contexts in which they live, from their communities. A group of selected students (maximum 30), four days together, a unique location in its kind, a multidisciplinary faculty, and an experience of community.

What are the “fundamental” for the resilience theory that can be reflected in environmental policies, regional and urban planning to help control global change? And, more importantly, what the fundamentals that constitute a credible and reasonable framework conditions – general and specific – of the urban settlement resilience?
