The advent of widespread acceptance of CO2 and other greenhouse gases being a major contributor to global warming has put environmental concerns high on the global agenda. Baird’s CMC has successfully undertaken strategy development, policy research, and advocacy for numerous clients in this area, including the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Shell Foundation. Our senior consultants have advised governments on global environmental issues, attended landmark environmental conferences as delegates, and participated in international negotiations around various environmental conventions.
Project examples:The Hewlett Foundation funded pathbreaking research on links between family planning in developed and developing countries and global warming. Baird’s CMC’s role was to take the research and communicate it to key audiences. Another project entailed examining methodologies of integrating issues of indoor air pollution and the associated emission of greenhouse gases in the forward planning mechanisms of the Indian government.
