NDC training jointly developed with ECO

Training capacitates countries to address national contributions

2018-12/ When shaping their national contributions to combatting climate change along the Paris Agreement, countries can now draw on a training course of which the part on adaptation was developed by ECO Consult. The course consists of altogether six modules which are provided by German cooperation to capacitate countries in their NDC processes. All signatories to the UNFCCC Agreement are bound to deliver Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) to achieve the climate-related objectives. The training, commissioned by GIZ, is a comprehensive companion: It links the requirements of a country’s political agenda, its international stance and ongoing national adaptation processes. >NEWS

Coming to grips with sustainability

Sincere action for development means integrated action

Sustainable development indispensably prerequires ecological integrity, economic viability and social equity. This notion underlies ECO's work as a company and is also reflected in our name. But trivial though this may appear 26 years after UNCED, sustainability remains hard to define – and even harder to apply — in practice. For instance, any attempt at reducing greenhouse-gas emissions from forest conversion will fail if we do not touch on land rights, productivity and equitable decision-making. Likewise, the Global Landscapes Forum at their recent gathering in Bonn, December 2017, again underpinned the need for coordinated, interdisciplinary and inclusive action. > FIELDS OF WORK
