This website is a result of efforts of members of USAID's Office of Global Climate Change, and the three organizations comprising the Environmental Communication, Learning, & Outreach (ECO) contract.
USAID Office of Global Climate Change
USAID's mission is to partner to end extreme poverty and to promote resilient, democratic societies while advancing our security and prosperity. Many places around the world already experience climate change impacts, including hotter temperatures, rising sea levels, less predictable rains and harvests and more frequent, intense droughts, storms and floods. As global climate change advances, development efforts must be clean, climate-smart and climate-resilient. Indeed, only by promoting climate-smart development can we safeguard global development gains from these impacts and continue to advance global prosperity.

Training Resources Group
Training Resources Group, Inc. (TRG) is an employee-owned consulting and training firm focused on organizational and individual capacity-building and learning located in Arlington, Virginia. Since its founding in 1973, TRG has grown steadily in size and in professional capabilities. TRG has worked in over one hundred countries providing training and organizational development services to clients in large and small corporations, international organizations, federal and state government agencies and non-profit organizations. As the prime contractor for the Sharing Environment and Energy Knowledger (SEEK) project, TRG is supporting USAID’s offices working in the environment, natural resource management, and global climate change areas to ensure that AID staff capacity in all sectors, from DC and the field, are more effective in planning for and integrating those considerations into their programming to achieve greater impact and sustainable development.
TRG contributes to the strategic planning and select content development.
Environmental Incentives got its start as a small business consulting firm working to improve the way public funds were being spent on efforts to address the decline in Lake Tahoe’s famous clarity in 2004. Today, we have grown to operate four offices across the U.S. and support field staff in multiple countries. We partner with program managers and funders to improve their effectiveness in our three practice areas: water resources, wildlife and land conservation, and international development.
