Adaptation Community

The USAID/GCC office's monthly Adaptation Community Meetings (ACM) are held each third Thursday in Washington, D.C. Co-hosted by Climate Change Resilient Development (CCRD) implementing partner Engility/IRG, the ACM features interactive discussions with thought leaders within the adaptation community. The 90 minute sessions are broadcast live via webinar, and recordings can be seen on USAID's ClimateLinks YouTube channel.

ACM thought leaders share their work, lessons, and insights on development and climate work around the world. A few of the ACM events are featured below, and include a link to their recorded webinar presentation. Do you have questions about the ACMs? Please contact Joyce-Lynn Njinga, Engility/IRG Senior Specialist, at
