Community Spotlights: Share Your Work on Climate Risk Management with the Climatelinks Community!

By Climatelinks

Climatelinks is focusing on climate risk management for the planning, design and implementation of international development interventions.

Both through the Climatelinks portal and via Twitter @climatelinks, we highlight case studies, methods, tools and resources that support climate risk management. 

Climatelinks would like to hear from you! What work are you or your organization doing to screen for current and expected climate risks and to identify opportunities in agriculture, water, health, infrastructure, energy, and other sectors? Do you have online resources, tools, videos, blogs, or events you would like to share with the Climatelinks community on this topic? Send us a message at [email protected] with your resources by May 31 and we will share them via our blog, social media and monthly newsletter.

We look forward to receiving and sharing information about activities and resources developed by your organization or others that you look to for guidance as a development practitioner.

Check out our climate risk management resources and other Community Spotlights blogs. Sign up to receive the monthly call for resources related to our monthly theme.

With agriculture driving deforestation, global climate protection and biodiversity conservation goals seem to collide with the drive to produce more food. Researchers warn of an impending “food security-biodiversity-climate” crisis and “looming land scarcity.”
