CEADIR helps national and subnational governments, the private sector, and civil society make the business and economic case for climate change mitigation and adaptation by planning strategies, investments, and policies. This global project conducts assessments, develops and disseminates tools, and increases capacity for analysis, design, and implementation of clean energy (renewable energy and energy efficiency), sustainable landscapes, and adaptation. It supports Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS), Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) and helps mobilize private and public financing.
CEADIR services—to USAID country and regional missions and USAID/Washington—span activity scoping; sector studies; cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analyses (including environmental and health co-benefits); economic modeling payments for environmental services; vulnerability and impact analyses; and training on economics and climate change mitigation and adaptation planning.
CEADIR hosts Navigating the Climate Economy, a monthly discussion series on measuring economic impacts and unlocking financing for clean energy, sustainable landscapes, and adaptation.
