Climatelinks is a global knowledge portal for USAID staff, implementing partners, and the broader community working at the intersection of climate change and international development. The portal curates and archives technical guidance and knowledge related to USAID’s work to help countries mitigate and adapt to climate change.
“No pilots fail, but no pilots scale.”
Dr. Bruce Campbell, director of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture, and Food Security, lamented this on the first morning of the 5th Global Science Conference on Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA). This was a common refrain at the conference: Many technologies and practices are effective on a small scale, but have limited widespread uptake.
Since 1991, USAID has been investing in actions that help the Agency in understanding climate change risks and opportunities to reduce vulnerabilities. USAID supports approximately 30 countries around the world with development of the tools and knowledge needed for adapting to climate change. USAID’s adaptation efforts focus on increasing access to and use of climate and weather data and tools as a means of building resilience to climate variability and risks.
