USAID Climate Action Review: 2010 - 2016 (Report Launch)
On December 5, 2016, USAID and the Wilson Center hosted a panel discussion to launch the USAID Climate Action Review: 2010-2016 and highlight successes and lessons learned from USAID's climate change work.
For many years, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has been a leader in assisting partner countries to pursue low-carbon economic growth and build their resilience to the impacts of a changing climate. Through investments in clean energy and adaptation and support for sustainable forestry and agriculture, and by integrating best practices across its development portfolio, USAID’s approach to building the capacity and confidence of partners has yielded major achievements as well as lessons learned.
