The resilience work E Co. undertakes includes focusing on those most vulnerable, the last mile, the disadvantaged, especially in the context of extreme weather events and a changing climate linked to other nexus areas of food, water, energy, health etc.
Comments from E Co. Senior consultant, Imelda Phadtare:
We are very excited to partner with REAP and to ensure the work we already deliver around the globe on climate change is both amplified and even more meaningful. REAP’s targets of keeping individuals safe from extreme weather events through mobilising climate finances to invest in scientifically robust early warning systems and early actions, aligns with the type of market studies, strategies and project formulation we are committed to for adaptation and resilient solutions. In those countries where E Co. has existing projects with national and sub-national governments, we hope to work closely with REAP to support their targets, while also collaborating with REAP’s wider partners to share and build vital knowledge and communicate critical information for low carbon, climate resilient futures for all.
