By Gillian Caldwell, Douglas Mason, and Peter Schultz, Ph.D.

Today’s climate impacts affect nearly every region of the world. But the worst impacts are felt in developing nations that are the least prepared to weather them. To address this growing threat, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) recently released new climate change strategies.

In this on-demand webinar, hosted by the ICF Climate Center, senior officials from USAID and MCC discuss their new climate change strategies, including a focus on climate resilience and adaptation.

Hear more about:

  • USAID’s draft climate strategy, including specific targets to advance equitable and ambitious actions
  • Six key elements of MCC’s new climate strategy
  • A whole-of-government initiative to support vulnerable communities in adapting to and managing the impacts of climate change
