Climatelinks, officially launched November 2015, is a clearinghouse built for USAID staff, implementing partners, and the broader global community working at the intersection of climate change and international development. The portal provides access to USAID documents and resources that offer technical guidance and information aimed at helping countries mitigate and adapt to climate change.
Climatelinks is divided into five main sections. The “what we do” section explains the projects and actions USAID is involved in related to adaptation, clean energy, and sustainable landscapes. The “where we work” tab allows users to see where USAID is actively working on each of these subjects. The learning tab describes the events, trainings, and monitoring efforts USAID is involved in.
The “resources” section allows users to search a library of over 400 USAID publications, fact sheets, webinars, and reports. This section also provides access to a number of USAID tools aimed at mitigation and adaptation including tools on financing and decision making. The blog section features news summaries and highlights of the major international climate stories.
