Climatelinks' new design still includes thousands of resources related to USAID’s climate programming.

Fresh Look for Climatelinks

By Climatelinks

Climatelinks has a new design and updated content – just in time for the United States to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord. The site has been revamped to better meet the needs of the USAID, its climate and development partners, and the climate community around the world. 

Originally launched in October 2015, the site also serves as a venue for information sharing and exchange within its community of users. Some key features include: 

Updated Sector Pages 

To promote cross-sectoral climate integration for better development outcomes, the site includes updated sector pages, including Biodiversity, Conflict & Governance, Disaster Risk Management, Economic Growth, Health, Food Security and Agriculture, and more. Each page includes recent resources, blogs, and events related to that sector.

New Country Pages 

We have updated all USAID country pages with a more user-friendly data dashboard, including climate change indicators, such as annual change in greenhouse gas emissions, percent forest area, deforestation rates, GAIN vulnerability index ratings, USAID funding, and policy indicators, such as country plans and commitments.

Climate Risk Management Portal 

This page includes our most popular resources––the Climate Risk Profiles and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Fact Sheets. There are also Climate Risk Management training resources that anyone can take from home.

Photo Gallery

The redesigned photo gallery now hosts more than 300 photos from climate and development programs around the world. Stunning photos come from two recent Climatelinks photo contests, as well as blog contributors. These images tell the story of nature-based solutions to climate change by geography and sector.

Climatelinks

The portal curates and archives technical guidance and knowledge related to USAID’s work to help countries mitigate and adapt to climate change. 

More on the Blog

Climate adaptation can take many forms, ranging from disaster risk reduction to natural resources management, according to the Fifth Assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
This blog is part of the Benefits of Climate Risk Management blog series that aims to provide evidence-based deep dives into USAID case studies. A USAID-funded Cambodia fisheries project outperformed productivity goals after incorporating climate-sensitive design, including planning for increased risk of drought and extreme heat events.
In December 2019, Typhoon Kammuri flooded parts of Legazpi City, one of the biggest natural hazard hotspots in the country. Earlier that year, USAID had helped the local water district develop an emergency preparedness plan for maintaining and restoring water services when disasters strike.
