Welcome to the Climatelinks Beta Test!
Together with our partners, we created this global knowledge portal for USAID staff and implementing partners. We begin with the goals of (1) curating and organizing USAID’s climate change resources in one place, and (2) increasing the collective awareness of USAID’s work to address climate change. From this starting point, we can better identify USAID’s programmatic strengths, information gaps, and opportunities for knowledge sharing. Through your engagement and contributions, this platform will serve as an important information base to soften the learning curve; identify and refine better practices; and deepen our understanding of context-dependent factors vital to achieving climate change benefits.
Climatelinks features over 500 pages of new and curated content, including 428 resources, 50+ videos, and dozens of events.
Learn About Climatelinks
The Climatelinks homepage allows multiple entry points for diving into the portal’s content. You will notice the thematic organization follows USAID’s strategic objectives and pillars of work, with landing pages for adaptation, clean energy, sustainable landscapes, and integration.
Climatelinks encompasses an extensive library with 428 custom-curated USAID resources that can be searched and filtered by keywords, by geography, and more.
The blog features weekly USAID-supported project posts and an interlinked news summary highlighting the main climate story in mainstream media each week.
The Climatelinks events calendar compiles, organizes and presents climate change events from around the globe that development practitioners may benefit from either participating in or, minimally, being aware of.
The user-responsive map in Climatelinks offers a country or region-specific profile of USAID climate change programs, some climate-related context indicators, and funding for Fiscal Year 2015.
The Climatelinks YouTube channel organizes over thirty USAID-supported videos on climate change—from online trainings, to webinars, to project-specific informational videos.
Information for Users
In this survey, we invite USAID staff and implementing partners to provide broader feedback on Climatelinks and its content. Your feedback will be used to help us prioritize where we invest our time and resources in improving the portal moving forward.
Over time our hope is that Climatelinks provides one way to work together - not to reinvent the wheel, but to build a better one and in less time. The scores of countries where USAID currently supports bilateral or regional climate change programs offer at least that many opportunities for learning, sharing, and supporting more-effective programs toward achieving clean, climate-resilient development.
Thank you in advance for valuable feedback and insight that will help shape the future direction of Climatelinks.
