Climate Change

The effects of climate change are present in almost all regions of the world and are increasingly seen as the global challenge of the new millennium. The loss of biodiversity and damage to ecosystems endanger food security and livelihoods particularly for the poor. Melting glaciers and the associated long-term reduction in the amount of water in rivers threaten agriculture and the drinking water supply. Rising temperatures and prolonged dry periods hinder agriculture and reduce access to clean water. Climate change is particularly noticeable in the tropics and subtropics. Extreme weather conditions cause increased contaminations and reduced plant growth and normally increase production costs. Yet the long-term effects on production and competitive conditions are still unclear, but climate change already has visible effects on global migration flows.
Almost all countries have made considerable efforts in this context in measures to further limit emissions and to enable an improved resilience of ecosystems, economies and people for climate change.


Como advises national and local governments and producers' associations in creating measures to adapt agricultural production to the changing climate conditions, focusing on the use of traditional knowledge in small farming operating systems to sustainably manage these in an economical and ecological way. Como also advises on the use of products from tropical ecosystems that preserve the biodiversity. In addition, we extend our consulting in the areas of green growth, renewable energies and energy efficiency as well as innovation and technology cooperation to reduce greenhouse gases.

We advise REDD programmes in developing and implementing REDD strategies and in the development of pilot projects.
