Environmental issues like climate change, ecosystem degradation, and resource depletion disproportionately affect the world’s poorest in both rural and urban areas. Only by governing our natural resources effectively can we achieve inclusive, equitable, and sustainable growth and development for everyone.

Palladium helps communities share in the wealth of natural resources around them and build resilience to the impacts of climate change, natural disasters and resource conflicts. In the vanguard of the Impact Economy, we’ve pioneered multi-stakeholder approaches in contested sectors such as forestry and mining. Our experts combine technical knowledge with exceptional consultation and negotiation skills across a variety of sectors, including forestry, climate change, land, water resources and extractive industries.

Our Solutions
  • Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience
  • Climate Financing
  • Natural Resource Governance
  • Water Resources, Sanitation, and Hygiene

We understand the threats climate change brings – from more frequent natural disasters to habitat loss – and recognise the necessity of preparing communities, protecting land, and shielding livelihoods.

The challenges faced by communities and governments are complex and multi-faceted. Palladium brings together knowledge and skills in livelihoods, adaptation, social protection, disaster resilience, and humanitarian response to make real changes in the lives of vulnerable people.

Leveraging our leadership role in the Impact Economy, Palladium takes a multi-sectoral approach to environmental interventions, leveraging technological innovation and local expertise to design solutions that are holistic, adaptive, and suited to context. Our programs consider and incorporate issues of social inclusion, gender, and asymmetrical power relationships, maintaining a participatory engagement process and delivering politically smart, locally-led programs.

In addition to program leadership and implementation, we also provide analyses, reviews, and design plans that include scoping studies, policy planning, program evaluations, and baseline reviews.
