Climate Resilient Infrastructure Services

Rapid growth in developing countries and the added stress of climate change threaten the reliability of infrastructure services, which are critical to achieving development objectives. CRIS is working with cities in developing countries and USAID Missions to increase the climate resilience of infrastructure services.

The objectives of CRIS are to:
  • Support development by increasing the climate resilience of infrastructure services
  • Mainstream climate risk management into the CCRD development approach
  • Demonstrate and test new approaches to promote climate resilient infrastructure

Currently, pilot projects are underway:

  • Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
  • Piura, Peru
  • Truillo, Peru
  • Nacala, Mozambique
  • Hue, Vietnam
