Education

Climate change negatively affects access to education. Extreme weather events and other climate impacts can inhibit access to schools or close them altogether, reduce household incomes and therefore families’ abilities to invest in education, and interrupt attendance when vulnerable populations are forced to migrate. Increasing the resilience of education systems can reduce these risks. Resilient education systems can also educate individuals and communities on climate adaptation and encourage future climate action. USAID’s Climate Strategy recommends increasing the resilience of the education sector to ensure learning continuity and the development of climate adaptation skill sets, especially for underrepresented and vulnerable populations.
