The AFOLU sector is high-risk and uncertain; Vivid offers clarity through evidence-driven economic analysis and actionable recommendations
Land use planning suffers from complex multi-layered issues, a lack of data and often no clear policy precedent. Decision-makers must deal with trade-offs between economic, environmental and social objectives and set policy without adequate enforcement capacity. Against this backdrop, robust and reliable information is critical to incentivise change. Vivid’s innovative solutions offer new data and insights to equip policy- and private sector decision-makers with the evidence they need to be confident in their next move.
Vivid brings a long track record in both policy and project pipeline development, underpinned by climate expertise, strong spatial capabilities, and a deep understanding of financial markets
The international climate community is increasingly recognising the AFOLU sector as the single largest source of low-cost GHG mitigation potential, a powerful negative emissions technology, and critical to nature-based approaches to resilience. Vivid brings expertise in scoping, developing and evaluating sustainable land use projects, including robust accounting and valuation of ecosystem service impacts. We combine spatial econometric capability with satellite- and GIS-based data products to offer unparalleled analytical capacity. Our strong relationship with the international investor and donor communities affords us a unique perspective on finance for sustainable land use including instrument design, institutional positioning and market development.
