Welcome to the website of Garama 3C Ltd. We are a small consultancy firm based in the UK, specialising in climate change and development. Our main focus is on helping organisations to promote resilience and adaptation to climate change. We work with research bodies, governments, non-governmental and civil society organisations, the private sector, and organisations responsible for the implementation of development programmes, in the UK and internationally. We support organisations in the design of adaptation strategies and measures, the “mainstreaming” of climate change adaptation and resilience into their day-to-day activities, the assessment of climate-related risks, the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of adaptation (i.e. “is it working?”), and adaptation and resilience learning. We also organise training on a wide range of climate change related topics, through bespoke training events for individual organisations, and regular courses that are open to anyone.

Our name refers to our main activities of Guidance, Analysis, Risk Assessment, Mainstreaming and Adaptation (although the list is growing). It is also the name of the ancient capital of the Garamantian Tribal Confederation, a central Saharan civilisation that emerged from the prehistoric pastoralist societies of the central Sahara as they adapted to extreme aridity, driven by (in this case natural) changes in the global climate. 3C refers to the fact that we are a climate change consultancy; it is also the approximate amount of average global surface warming expected to result from a doubling of greenhouse gas concentrations in the Earth’s atmosphere compared to pre-industrial levels.
