Climate and Energy

Climate changes are a key challenge for humanity. They have the particularity to hit mostly the poorest populations, who are least responsible for this imbalance. They require greater solidarity and question our life styles, ways of management, production methods and governance.
The COP 21, which took place in Paris in November 2015, has mobilized the International community on these challenges, and was notably the opportunity to formalize the commitments made by industrialized countries to finance Climate Changes mitigation and adaptation for the most vulnerable countries. This event helped accelerating the implementation of the Green Climate Fund (GCF).
Oréade-Brèche has developed a national and international know-how in climate changes mitigation and in supporting adaptation to their effects.

Technical assistance for the improved use of agriculture and forest biomass in French Guyana

Client(s) : French Agency for environment and energy management (ADEME) - 2014 - 2015
The clearing of land dedicated to agriculture, can potentially enable in Guyana to provide biomass for energy production. But the implementation of these projects and the organization of the agricultural sector, requires external support, both to appraise the stocks, methods, costs, but also to animate the project and structure the actors. ADEME, the State and the Region wanted thus to have a facilitator, to achieve these missions, under the Rural Network of Guyana

Oréade-Brèche has recruited the biomass technical assistant to conduct the three missions: knowing, animating and structuring. This specialist has carried out:
- A detailed description of the available literature and of the remaining points still to deepen,
- A database of the actors involved in this new sector,
- A roadmap for the implementation of this mission, in accordance with the views of funders of the project,
- The animation and structuring of the project, which are expected to continue over several years.
