GCC Brief: Adaptation

USAID’s climate resilient development initiatives reduce vulnerability to today’s climate and weather extremes while helping developing countries prepare for future variability and changes in climate. Coastal storms, floods, droughts, and long-term changes in temperature and precipitation patterns can undo decades of progress and investments in development. In just a few short hours, a storm can damage or destroy homes, commercial and industrial operations, and infrastructure. In a few months, an extended drought can put economic networks, food security, and individual livelihoods at risk.
