The Applied Projects Group is a group of geoscience, business, and policy experts that help organisations develop solutions for geo-risk mitigation and integrate them into clients’ decision-making process. The APG works closely with EOS scientists, other leading academics, and geo-risk experts, customising projects for organisations to assess and mitigate risks around climate change, sea-level rise, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, and floods. This enables seamless integration of world-class geoscience and strategic response capabilities around three core service offerings.
These are geo-hazard and risk mapping, geo-science technology solutions, and solution strategies and practices.
The objective of the project is to assess the economic case for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation in Gunung Palung National Park (GPNP).
The MRBI responds to the IPCC’s need for a peer-reviewed publication on climate change adaptation projects in the Lower Mekong Basin (LMB) for the Asia Chapter of its 5th Assessment Report.
Frequently investments into climate change adaptation are perceived to be made at the expense of enhancing national economic competitiveness. This research seeks to provide evidence that this perception represents a false choice.
