For millions of people around the world, the consequences of climate change are increasingly devastating.
Higher temperatures bring more droughts and the spread of heat-related, infectious diseases, result in the loss of homes, jobs and food. The far-reaching effects of climate change hit poor people the hardest. They have the fewest resources and the least capacity to prepare for, plan for, and withstand climate change crises.
Our Developing Climate Change Resilience Initiative aims to catalyze attention, funding and action to promote resilience to climate change on several levels. We focus on three pivotal areas: Asian urban environments, African agriculture and US policy.
