A Framework for Understanding and Addressing Climate Change

USAID’s Climate-Resilient Development Framework (2014) offers a simple yet robust five-stage approach to help decisionmakers and development practitioners at all levels systematically assess climate-related risks and prioritize actions that promote climate-resilient development.

Developed by USAID, this “development-first” approach helps decisionmakers and practitioners integrate climate considerations directly into development activities across multiple sectors, keeping the focus on achieving development goals despite a changing climate. Working with USAID missions, governments, and other stakeholders, the framework has been used in Barbados, Jamaica, Nepal, Peru, the Philippines, St. Lucia, Tanzania, and West Africa.
