Ricardo has extensive expertise in providing robust and leading-edge modelling support to governments around the world. From macro-economic models that analyse the impact of policy on future environmental, energy and socio-economic scenarios, through to near-real time modelling. Our support delivers robust insights for improved decision making, enabling policy makers to achieve national and sub-national climate ambitions.

Ricardo supported policymakers from 16 countries to put forward fair and ambitious Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) for Paris that reflected each country’s development goals, and is now supporting countries to implement their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). This includes the development of national NDC implementation roadmaps, sector action plans, implementation tools and procedures, and capturing the synergies between NDCs and National Adaptation Plans (NAPs). 

Our NDC team includes internationally-recognised climate policy and sectoral experts who can advise on specific technical solutions and are well-placed to support governments on the NDC implementation journey.

We support governments with adaptation, mitigation, climate finance, Measurement, reporting and verification (MRV), NDC governance and stakeholder engagement and communication.

We provide the robust and reliable evidence required to future-proof decision-making in response. Our support includes:

  • Cost-benefit analysis: we provide suitable approaches for assessing costs and benefits in line with national or international appraisal guidelines.
  • Financial analysis: we create financial models to assess the profitability of business cases around green technology investments.
  • Emissions modelling: we generate modelling tools to make projections for carbon and air pollution emissions for example carbon and emissions from fleets across all modes of transport.
  • Techno-economic modelling tools: we develop tailored models to assess the environmental and socio-economic performance of a portfolio of abatement technologies for industry, transport fleets and infrastructure.
