*Progress under the Mitigation targets will be calculated by modeling results using performance data reported by Operating Units. Initial mitigation data is based on Operating Unit reporting in FY2022 and 2023. Updated Mitigation results based on modeled data will be available by Fall 2024.

**Progress under the Adaptation target will be calculated using modeling based off of USAID data. Peer-reviewed Adaptation results will be available in Fiscal Year 2025.

Funding 

In FY23, USAID budgeted $579 million for adaptation, clean energy, and sustainable landscapes programs to address the most urgent needs posed by the climate crisis.

*Please note that results for a given fiscal year do not directly link to the budget for that fiscal year (displayed in the above spreadsheet), as there is a lag between when dollars are budgeted and spent. In addition, there is also a lag between when funding is spent and results achieved, as described on the USAID Dollars to Results Web Portal:

What is the linkage between the dollars spent in a country and the results shown for that country?

“... Due to the nature of foreign assistance programs, it can be difficult to link FY disbursements directly to FY results. There is often a time lag between the disbursement of a dollar and when a result is achieved from that investment. For example, if USAID builds a school, most of the spending takes place in the first several years of the project as construction begins. However, results may not be achieved until years later when the school opens and classes begin. 

The results shown for each mission are not comprehensive of all achievements through foreign assistance in any given country. Results shown on the website give a snapshot of the type of results achieved by USAID. The website is not a comprehensive reporting tool and should not be considered as such.”

USAID’s Climate Work: FY 2023 Review

In FY 2023 USAID supported its partners to: prevent 295 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions, help communities in more than 60 countries build their resilience to climate impacts, conserve 82 million hectares of tropical rainforests, and mobilize $16.7 billion in outside public and private finance on top of USAID’s work.
