Technical experts and capacity building

Aether has a broad range of experienced experts skilled in capacity building and knowledge sharing.  These experts support the European Commission, UNDP and other organisations in delivering focussed and progressive programmes of capacity building including the development of organisational and institutional systems for sustainable data gathering, analysis and reporting of data on greenhouse gases and air pollutants.  Much of this work is focussed on supporting countries in meeting the Paris Agreement commitments, particularly on transparency and in developing sustainable MRV systems for Nationally Determined Contributions.

Aether provides expertise in the development and management of UNFCCC and European Commission review and assessment activities and support countries in gearing up for engagement in  international analysis.

Aether’s projects for the European Commission have supported the development of expertise and systems in Member States for GHG inventory and projection reporting.  Aether experts have also lead work for the European Commission to build capacity in countries neighbouring the EU including Albania, Montenegro, Macedonia, Kosovo, Serbia, Bosnia Herzegovina and Turkey.  

Aether has been closely involved in the set-up and establishment of the Coalition on Paris Agreement Capacity Building which sets out to provide thought leadership on the development of Measuring, Reporting and Verification systems to inform decision makers and track progress on climate action.
