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.
In arid regions with already unreliable water and sanitation services, climate change is a threat multiplier for those who rely on functional infrastructure for basic water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) needs. Unpredictable deluge may jeopardize this infrastructure by damage or pollutant runoff, while increased drought will threaten water access.
The clean energy sector has seen rapid growth. Countries around the world have embraced these technologies to achieve low emission development goals, increase infrastructure resilience and energy access, and reduce reliance on imported fossil fuels. While the growth of clean energy represents a positive trend in the context of global commitments to climate action, women have so far not been able to participate fully in this sector. This disparity is a particular challenge for women entrepreneurs who can help drive the clean energy transition.
