USAID's Climate-Resilient Development Framework 5 steps

New USAID Article on Climate-Resilient Development & National Adaptation Planning

The USAID Global Climate Change Office’s team working on national adaptation plans (NAPs) published an article in the journal Climate and Development this past week. USAID works to support developing countries as they build climate resilience through their respective NAP processes. National adaptation planning is a critical component of climate-resilient development, and a priority for USAID and the U.S. government in supporting implementation of the recent Paris Climate Agreement.

The peer-reviewed article, titled "A perspective on climate-resilient development and national adaptation planning based on USAID's experience," analyzes the approaches, recommendations, and lessons learned from three NAP workshops held in Jamaica, Tanzania, and West Africa over the past few years. These workshops were hosted by national governments and regional institutions, in collaboration with USAID, to support the development of NAPs.
 
The team was supported by the Climate Change Resilient Development (CCRD) project from 2012 to late 2015. USAID is a founding member of the National Adaptation Plan Global Network. Published 22 February 2016, the article was written by Dr. Yoon Kim (Four Twenty Seven) and Joel B. Smith (Abt) with Charlotte Mack (Abt), Jonathan Cook (USAID), John Furlow (USAID), Joyce-Lynn Njinga (IRG/Engility), and Michael Cote (IRG/Engility).
