Projects around the world

We have projects around the world, guaranteeing viability regardless of borders or distances. We have the right processes for implementation around the world.

  • Ensuring transparency in climate action and support requires a continuous process of improvement, encompassing the collection, processing, analysis, compilation, reporting, and review of data. Establishing effective institutional arrangements is essential to achieving this transparency goal and the backbone of any transparency framework, facilitating countries in delivering a reliable, consistent, and continuous flow of data and information. These arrangements also support the engagement of national and subnational expertise, ensuring coordination between institutions and the generation of recurring, engaging, and progressively refined outputs. Institutional setups will naturally vary across nations, reflecting their distinct circumstances, action priorities, and the need to inform stakeholders involved in action implementation and reporting.
  • Gauss actively supports countries in analysing their institutional framework for climate action. This involves mapping stakeholders along with their existing capacities, procedures, and mandates and subsequently providing concrete recommendations and assistance in establishing or strengthening essential institutional, legal, and procedural reforms to align with policy objectives. This support is crucial for ensuring the sustainability of the system and the smooth flow of data and reporting in the countries Gauss assists.
  • Climate change mitigation refers to the collective efforts taken by governments, businesses, or individuals aimed at reducing or preventing the emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs) or enhancing carbon sinks that absorb them from the atmosphere. They are essential in safeguarding a biosphere capable of sustaining human civilization and the intricate array of ecosystem services it relies upon. Additionally, these efforts are crucial in striving to limit the increase in global average temperatures to 1.5°C under the Paris Agreement. It encompasses and requires a comprehensive approach that involves understanding current emissions, projecting future trajectories, exploring potential pathways for emission reductions, implementing effective policies and measures, and setting ambitious objectives to limit the impacts of climate change on both present and future generations.
  • Gauss has longstanding experience in the various crucial elements encompassed by climate change mitigation. This includes developing GHG inventories, both at the national and regional levels, and capacity building initiatives associated with GHG inventories, developing GHG emissions projections, designing and implementing monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV) systems for both GHG inventories and mitigation efforts, evaluation and updating of policies and measures, establishing mitigation certification frameworks, and formulating comprehensive mitigation policies and strategies.
  • As the world is experiencing escalating shifts in temperature averages, seasonal variations, and an increasing frequency of extreme weather events and slow onset events, coupled with climate change impacts and risks becoming increasingly complex and more difficult to manage, the urgency of climate change adaptation is mounting. Climate change adaptation plays a crucial role in the long-term global response to combat climate change, safeguarding populations, livelihoods, and ecosystems alike. It is essential for countries and communities, particularly those most vulnerable to climate change, to take action to address present and future climate change impacts. By doing so, they can enhance their ability to adapt, build resilience, and reduce vulnerability associated with the impacts of climate change
  • Gauss provides technical assistance and capacity building to countries and organisations worldwide in addressing the complex challenge of climate change adaptation. This work includes various aspects such as conducting socio-economic and environmental impacts assessments, developing climate models, establishing monitoring and evaluation (M&E) frameworks for adaptation, as well as formulating adaptation policies, strategies, and action plans.
  • Sustainable finance plays a crucial role in achieving both local and national policy goals and international agreements to address climate change and promote sustainability. It involves directing both public and private funds towards initiatives that facilitate a climate-neutral, resilient, resource-efficient, and just transition. As the scale of investment required for this transition increases, the urgency for sustainable finance has never been greater. Ensuring transparency and predictability in financial support is essential for understanding current sustainable finance flows and anticipating future needs.
  • Gauss provides technical assistance and capacity building on sustainable finance in more than forty countries worldwide, spanning both developed and developing nations. This includes conducting financial assessments related to climate change, establishing climate finance transparency frameworks, devising climate finance tracking methodologies, developing resource mobilisation guidelines, formulating NDC investment plans and climate finance strategies, and undertaking costing exercises for both mitigation and adaptation measures.
