Adaptation

Climate change impacts are pervasive, disparate, and disproportionate across sectors, populations, and geographies. With the next decade being decisive for the planet, USAID’s Climate Strategy takes a whole-of-Agency approach to improve the climate resilience of 500 million people by 2030. USAID supports countries and communities to prepare for current and future climate variability and change by expanding access and use of climate information in decision making, increasing the climate resilience of key development sectors and services, mainstreaming adaptation in plans and programs, employing nature-based solutions, and mobilizing adaptation finance and engaging the private sector in support of sustainable adaptation actions.
