Climate and natural resources

Whether exploring the most environmentally-responsible methods of using natural resources, analysing how best to budget for the effects of climate change, or investigating approaches to climate adaptation, we design, implement, and evaluate sensitive and sustainable policies.

Climate change is at the forefront of international discussion. It is vital that governments are able to implement policies that address current development needs, as well as mitigate the effects of climate change and successfully reduce and manage disaster risk.

National decision makers are increasingly exploring how best to transform mineral assets into sustainable economic and social development. We recognise the importance of ensuring that this is done through policies that are cognisant of each country’s economic, political, social, and environmental contexts.
