Well-functioning climate services can play a critical role in managing the risks of a changing and variable climate, helping decision-makers understand, anticipate, and manage climate-related risks across a range of time scales, from days to decades.

This is a webinar of the virtual soft launch of the Food Loss and Waste Value Chain Selection Guide. The Food Loss and Waste Value Chain Selection Guide has been developed with funding support from USAID Sustainable Landscapes Program and USDA Foreign Agricultural Service.
USAID Sustainable Landscapes Program and USDA Foreign Agricultural Service worked with Agribusiness Associates on an applied research project to enable greater investments in Food Loss and Waste (FLW) and integrate FLW into climate-smart agriculture programming.
Congratulations to the 13 winners of the 2020 Climatelinks Photo Contest!
This year’s theme, “Healthy Forests for a Healthy Future,” focuses on nature-based solutions to climate change such as active reforestation, plantations, agroforestry, and natural regeneration. The winning photos tell the stories of individual and community change agents for sustainable development, forest protection, and a climate-secure future.
