CEADIR - Climate Economic Analysis for Development, Investment and Resilience

CEADIR helped 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 conducted assessments, develops and disseminates tools, and increased capacity for analysis, design, and implementation of clean energy (renewable energy and energy efficiency), sustainable landscapes (natural climate solutions), and adaptation.  It supported Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS), Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), and helped mobilize private and public financing.

CEADIR services—to USAID country and regional missions and USAID/Washington—spanned 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 hosted Navigating the Climate Economy, a monthly discussion series on measuring economic impacts and unlocking financing for clean energy, sustainable landscapes, and adaptation. The funding ceiling was over $20.1 million, including central resources and buy-ins from USAID missions and offices. CEADIR’s period of performance extended to March 2021.

Although half of global mangrove deforestation since 2000 has been in Indonesia, Bintuni Bay and Mimika District have some of the largest intact areas of mangroves in the world. These two areas are also home to many indigenous groups and have special autonomous governance status and exceptional biodiversity.
