Supporting Planning and Financing for Climate Adaptation

Since mid-2014, the USAID-funded Climate Economic Analysis for Development, Investment, and Resilience (CEADIR) Activity has provided technical assistance for climate adaptation as well as clean energy and sustainable landscapes. This support has included financial and economic analysis, planning, policy analysis, and strategies for obtaining public and private financing. CEADIR is implemented by Crown Agents USA and Abt Associates.

February’s Adaptation Community Meeting will focus on three examples of CEADIR’s support for climate adaptation: Designing and developing public-private partnerships for disaster risk reduction in three medium-sized cities in India using mandated corporate social responsibility contributions; Training on incorporating climate adaptation in local planning for key value chains and biodiversity and leveraging public and private finance in Madagascar; and Training key stakeholders on adaptation planning and financing for fisheries and agriculture in Senegal.
