At RFF, we create economy-wide and sector-specific climate solutions that are effective, efficient, equitable, beneficial to the economy, and able to achieve net-zero emissions goals. We also evaluate the physical and economic impacts of climate change, using data to assess risks, and equipping decisionmakers with the information needed to build resilience in their communities.
