CCRD Adaptation Partnership Factsheet
This factsheets provides information on the USAID supported Adaptation Partnership, a global coalition aimed at sharing information and lessons learned about climate change adaptation. Chaired by the governments of the U.S., Costa Rica and Spain, the Partnership engaged governments, institutions, practitioners, and planners from more than 50 developed and developing countries, and served as a catalyst for increasing resilience to climate change throughout the world.
Since the Partnership’s founding in 2010, USAID has supported more than 10 capacity-building workshops in Africa, Asia, and Latin America focused on climate change vulnerability and adaptation issues related to food security, climate services, urban climate resilience, coastal and marine protected areas, and high mountain glacial regions.
USAID worked with other members of the Adaptation Partnership to cultivate the following activities:
- Communities of Practice were established to facilitate continuing communication and collaboration on climate services, glacial retreat, and climate resilient agriculture.
- Innovative scientific research and economic analyses are underway to learn more about important climate change issues, including glacial lake formation and the economic value of climate services.
- Three small grant programs stimulated adaptation field research, training, planning and information-sharing. Grant awards ranged from $25,000 to $550,000.
USAID continues to support the communities of practice that emerged from the Partnership, with results and lessons from the Partnership being shared with the Adaptation Committee.
