Climate change is leaving no corner of the world untouched. The impacts of the climate crisis extend far beyond the environmental sector. USAID must work on the ground with partner governments and local actors across sectors to achieve its vision of a resilient, prosperous, and equitable world with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. As part of its whole-of-Agency Climate Strategy, USAID is integrating climate resilience and mitigation more robustly into its program cycle by improving and building upon its existing practice of climate risk management. This and other reforms will help ensure USAID and its implementing partners are better equipped to confront the climate crisis.
