McCO understands that environmental issues are a critical policy challenge that affect every facet of daily life. When not effectively managed and addressed, these challenges become a national security issue. McCO experts advise on and design solutions for these challenges by using evidence and equity principles to identify policy solutions and build the capacity of decision makers to delivery long term solutions to local communities and for local communities to advocate for their interests and understand the long term value of good conservation, climate and energy practices.
Natural resource management, clean energy development, and climate change are among the most critical challenges facing humankind. For communities to survive and thrive, we must prevent the degradation of natural resources, identify and utilize sustainable energy sources, preserve cultural heritage sites, and reverse and mitigate adverse impacts of climate change on people and the environment, globally. These issues also disproportionately affect populations that are already disadvantaged. McCO is committed to addressing critical conservation, energy, and climate issues through policy solutions and capacity building for local communities.
Through our years of experience working on projects around the world, McCO has cultivated a deep bench of experts who are leaders in their fields, and we leverage these relationships to design and develop creative conservation solutions to mitigate negative environmental conditions. Our training and capacity building work uses proven methodologies and custom tools designed in-house to ensure knowledge retention and effective organizational development that maximize the effectiveness of our clients and their partners to engage in conservation, energy, and climate issues meaningfully and cost-effectively.
With humankind at a crossroads in terms of how we interact with our environment, effective stewardship of natural resources and cultural and environmental conservation offer one of the greatest opportunities to protect and improve the quality of life, globally.
