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.
