Climate Change Advisory
Analysing and formulating policy for climate change and GHGemissions requires in-depth understanding of a range of technical, commercial, institutional and governance aspects of adaptation and mitigation measures for climate change. These measures could be at national, sub-national or local level. Understanding of international aspects and negotiations is critical for successful design and implementation of these measures. Idam Infra´s team of highly experienced professionals has worked with several relevant global institutions like WB-PMR, UNFCCC, and WRI in design, development and review of such measures.
The benefits of a low-carbon economy include meeting the objectives of fast-paced economic growth while addressing the climate change challenge. Low carbon growth is also intended to address the growing concerns related to energy security by cutting down on the use of fossil fuels. Both climate change and energy security make it imperative to diversify into low-carbon energy sources for sustainable long-term growth. Our services in the space of low-carbon transformation (LCT) and energy strategy benefit corporations and encompass estimating and forecasting baseline GHG emissions, identifying cost-effective low-carbon options, reviewing the existing regulatory structure, developing customized LCT roadmaps, etc.
A GHG registry is a tool for collecting, verifying, and tracking bottom-up data on emissions of GHG from emitters such as facilities or companies. Registries of different types can serve a variety of objectives and inform a variety of decisions. Idam Infra has the necessary expertise to develop, regularly monitor, and update such data from many enterprises, which help in analysing how market leaders position themselves to deal effectively with climate change, integrating long-term value and the costs of dealing with the impacts of climate change into their business operations.
The Bali Action Plan of 2007 introduced the concept of nationally appropriate mitigating actions (NAMAs) to the world and in 2010, at Cancun, all countries agreed to take “nationally appropriate mitigation actions in the context of sustainable development, supported and enabled by technology, financing and capacity-building, aimed at achieving significant emissions reductions relative to business as usual emissions in 2020”. India also announced its National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC) incorporating eight missions and a low-carbon strategy that defines some potential NAMAs. Considering the comprehensiveness of the missions and the strategy, the number of NAMAs would be quite large. Idam Infra is well equipped to develop, identify, and manage potential NAMAs in Indian context.
The erstwhile Indian Ministry of Environment and Forests (now the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change) has asked all states in India to develop detailed action plans aimed at adapting to climate change (adaptation) and mitigating its adverse impacts (mitigation). These state action plans on climate change (SAPCCs) should be in line with the objectives of the NAPCC and ensure its implementation at the state level. Idam Infra is well equipped with the skills and expertise to provide consultancy support for SAPCCs and the various programmes associated with them.
