Global Climate Action 2015

For a Clean, Safe & Prosperous World

Since 2001, our planet has seen 15 of the 16 hottest years on record, and average global temperatures are forecast to rise 2° Celsius by 2040. Many countries where USAID works are already seeing changes in familiar climate and weather patterns, creating new risks that the world’s poorest countries are ill-prepared to face.

USAID is reaching more than 100 countries, helping people take meaningful actions to identify and manage climate-related risks and achieve clean, energy-secure economic growth.

The Philippines city of Cagayan de Oro is just one shining example of how climate actions – large and small – are making big contributions to development.
