Climate Change Resilient Development (CCRD) was a global, four-year project in support of USAID’s Global Climate Change Office (2012-2015). CCRD's climate adaptation-focused programs operate in 36 countries throughout Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Latin America and the Caribbean.
Employing USAID/GCC's strategic “development first" framework, CCRD delivered guidance, technical assistance, and
capacity building to 3 Regional Bureaus and 8 Missions for USAID, several national governments, and
dozens of local communities around the world to integrate climate change concerns into
development policy, planning, and implementation.
CCRD also explored emerging
issues in climate adaptation by developing innovative programs, such as the,

USAID Bureaus and Missions to mainstream adaptation into planning; utilize custom-tailored, industry-first tools; provide technical assistance; and build capacity to their respective stakeholders.
In addition, CCRD coordinated with other U.S. Government agencies, including NOAA and the Department
of State, to promote innovation in climate adaptation
CCRD is implemented by Engility/IRG and a consortium of four private contractors (ICF, Stratus Consulting, Cascadia, and Manoff Group), two NGOs (Environmental Law Foundation and The Mountain Institute), and three universities (IRI/Columbia University, University of Texas at Austin, and University of South Carolina).
