Climate-resilient development 101

Source(s):  United States Agency for International Development (USAID)

This 2-hour online course, intended for USAID staff and partners, uses interactive features and videos to introduce fundamental concepts of climate resilient development, including how climate impacts are affecting key development sectors. The course aims to equip this audience with the knowledge and skills to identify climate risks to development programs, communicate effectively about these risks, and apply existing resources and information to solving climate-related development problems with the ultimate goal of making USAID’s development efforts climate resilient. The course consists of two modules that have many interactive features and knowledge checks.

The first module of the course provides an overview of climate impacts on key sectors (e.g., agriculture, health, water). The module introduces key concepts necessary to understand how these impacts could affect USAID's development objectives. The module also includes 6 sector-specific videos describing climate impacts and ways USAID is working to address climate impacts. It also provides practice in communicating with USAID partners, host governments, and private sector stakeholders, specifically around ensuring development efforts are climate resilient.

The second module provides an overview of climate risk management (CRM), which is the process of assessing, addressing and adaptively managing climate risks. The module focuses on use of USAID's climate risk screening and management tool, which can be used to conduct climate risk assessments.
