About the Strategy:
On Earth Day 2021, USAID announced its commitment to develop a new Agency climate strategy. The strategy will guide the Agency’s efforts to target climate change resources strategically, ramp up climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts, and further integrate climate change considerations into international development and humanitarian assistance programs across all sectors.
