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.
We aim for this portal to improve climate change and development programming, amplifying the impact of USAID’s investments into the future. We hope Climatelinks becomes a place for development practitioners to help identify and refine practices, and to inform USAID’s technical direction in areas of information gaps.
Climatelinks is a venue for knowledge sharing, implemented through its Environmental Communications & Outreach project. Climatelinks does not represent the views of USAID or the U.S. Government. Please visit USAID’s Website for official government information.
