Climate & Sustainability

Enabling and realising low-carbon and climate-resilient development.

IMC brings together the expertise required to advise on cross-cutting and sector-specific strategies to deliver the transition to a better future. The integration of climate change into strategies and programmes embraces the roles of planning and land use, industrial and enterprise development, low-carbon infrastructure, inclusive job creation, biodiversity and resource use.

Climate programmes are often innovative and require wider institutional change. IMC provides integrated teams to overcome complex modern world problems through smart investment, new delivery mechanisms, emerging technologies, sustainable solutions and improved governance. In addition, the knowledge base is continuously shifting as new theories and research are published.

The appraisal and evaluation of climate programmes employs multiple sources of quantitative data, qualitative analysis and real-life case studies to optimise low-carbon and/or climate resilience processes in a multitude of national, regional, international or sector contexts.
