File Roadmap to Support Local Climate Resilience by Christin VanZant — last modified Mar 28, 2017 11:23 PM
This paper presents a roadmap of eight priority federal policy opportunities that build on the recommendations from the 2015 Rising Tides Summit, a first-of-its-kind bipartisan gathering of nearly 40 U.S. mayors and local elected officials from 18 of the 23 coastal U.S. states. The policy roadmap identifies key opportunities for the federal government to assist local communities with climate resilience efforts that can protect homes and jobs, build infrastructure that will last, preserve tourist towns and beaches, safeguard military bases, and ensure the longevity of ports.

File Advancing Global Food Security in the Face of a Changing Climate by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jul 30, 2014 06:33 PM
This report puts forward recommendations for how the US government can better address climate change through its policies on global agricultural development. It argues for the United States to rally international resources and deploy its agricultural research enterprise—its universities, research institutes, and agrifood businesses—to gather more information about how climate change will affect the global food system and develop the innovations to manage its impacts. It presents evidence that by enhancing the public sector’s partnerships with businesses and civil society, solutions that benefit populations around the world, from farmers in Africa to those in the United States, can be found. Featured July, 2014.
File Vulnerability And Resilience To Climate Change In Western Honduras by Portal Web Editor — last modified Nov 17, 2014 04:20 PM
The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)/African and Latin American Resilience to Climate Change (ARCC) Project conducted the Western Honduras Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment (Western Honduras VA) in 2014 in response to requests from USAID/Honduras. The assessment represents a multidisciplinary effort to assess the impact of climate change1 and variability2 on social and ecological systems in Western Honduras. This assessment focused on Western Honduras’s Dry Corridor (in Spanish, Corredor Seco) region and the six departments receiving Feed the Future (FtF) programming support: Copán, Ocotepeque, Lempira, Santa Barbara, Intibucá, and La Paz.

This framework facilitates the systematic inclusion of climate considerations in development decision-making. The framework’s objective is to support the development process by assisting development practitioners in identifying, evaluating, selecting, implementing, and adjusting actions to reduce climate vulnerabilities and improve development outcomes. The climate-resilient development framework described here is designed to promote actions that ensure progress toward development goals by including climate stressors, both climate variability and climate change.
File Improving Grassroots Equity in the Forests and Climate Change Context: Training Manual by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jun 11, 2015 12:15 AM
The USAID-funded Grassroots Equity and Enhanced Networks in the Mekong (GREEN Mekong) program recently completed a seminal training publication entitled “Improving grassroots equity in the forests and climate change context”. The manual aims to develop the knowledge and capacities of grassroots facilitators to conduct meaningful participatory processes that can improve social equity and inclusion in forest-based climate change mitigation policy frameworks, mechanisms and projects. Using innovative training approaches and methodologies grounded on experiential learning principles, this manual differs from typical REDD+ materials as it focuses on the ‘how' rather than the ‘what' of equity. It will help grassroots stakeholders to generate valuable opinions and positions about forests and climate change related developments. This manual will be translated into all Mekong region languages for wider use by grassroots actors.
