Climate Change Resilient Development 

CCRD Program(s)
: Adaptation Partnership, Climate Services,  National Adaptation Planning and Implementation

Description: This fact sheet provides an overview of USAID's CCRD project, as envisioned at the beginning of the project. CCRD activities increase the resilience of people, assets, and livelihoods to climate change impacts by integrating adaptation strategies into the broader development agenda and inducing donors, governments, and the private sector to invest in cost-effective adaptive strategies. The CCRD program focuses on three areas, providing: 1) support to USAID Bureaus and Missions through the development and dissemination of guidance, training, and capacity-building to strengthen the agency’s portfolio of adaptation projects, as well as the mainstreaming of climate concerns into other programs and projects; 2) coordination and support for activities related to U.S. Government climate change programs, including the Adaptation Partnership and Partnership Workshops programs; and 3) technical leadership in emerging areas of climate vulnerability and adaptation that need further innovation, including glaciers and mountains, climate services, and climate-resilient long-term planning.

The CSP website presents information on how to participate in the partnership and the activities of associated collaborations, working groups, and communities of practice.
