Working in partnership with our clients, Climate Concern is able to offer expertise across the areas of climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction and resilience.
Strategy and framework development
Climate Concern supports organisations to develop their own organisational and thematic strategies and frameworks specific to climate change, disasters and resilience, or to these into existing strategies and frameworks. This includes agency-wide, unit , program or project level strategies and frameworks for long term development programs, advocacy and campaigning, and disaster preparedness and recovery, and integrated resilience frameworks.
Advisory and technical support
Climate Concern supports organisations to build their knowledge and skills across a wide range of climate change, disaster and resilience related issues. We work across different sectors (food security; livelihoods, natural resource management, education, health and protection), and contexts (rural, urban and peri-urban, early recovery, conflict and slow-onset disaster). We also provide assistance on working with particularly vulnerable groups such as children, women, people with disability, older people, indigenous peoples, and people with chronic diseases. We have particular expertise in gender trans-formative approaches.
Policy, research and advocacy
Climate Concern supports organisations to develop new policies or to revise existing policies that consider and address climate change and disaster risk to build resilience. We undertake research into the impacts of climate change and disasters on different aspects of development, as well as research to develop strategies and actions to mitigate and adapt to disasters and climate change and build resilience. We also support organisations to develop and implement effective advocacy interventions.
Knowledge management and learning
Climate Concern supports organisations to improve their knowledge management capabilities, and to gather, synthesise and generate new knowledge and learning. This includes research to gather and document on-the-ground experience and learning from programs, monitoring and evaluation of projects and programs (including mid-term and end-of-program evaluations), as well as good practice case studies, and other learning products to share internally and externally.
Capacity strengthening and training
Climate Concern supports organisations to develop and deliver training to strengthen staff and partner capacity in climate change, disaster reduction and response, and resilience, linking these with development outcomes. This includes the development and facilitation of training , using Training of Trainer (ToT), and participatory learning and action methodologies.
