Organization Overview: 

USAID is the lead U.S. Government agency that works to end extreme global poverty and enable resilient, democratic societies to realize their potential. We partner to end extreme poverty and to promote resilient, democratic societies while advancing our security and prosperity.

Adaptation work: 

USAID’s adaptation work reaches field missions in Africa, Asia and Latin America with projects that support science, governance, and action for adaptation.

Activities build the resilience of countries, communities, individuals, and natural assets to climate change and variability from sudden events such as floods, storms as well as droughts and slower onset impacts such as hotter temperatures and sea-level rise. USAID activities enhance delivery of weather and climate information and tools and pilot new approaches to building resilience. 

Abstract

Today, international development policies have an increased focus on gender inequality. This is thanks to decades of lobbying by women’s organisations to improve women’s status and promote equal participation in economic, social and environmental decision-making. The Beijing Declaration, agreed at the United Nations (UN) ‘Fourth World Conference on Women’ in 1995, called on governments to design and implement effective gender-sensitive development policies and programmes, with the full participation of women at all levels.

Abstract

To correctly value ecosystem services both today and when considering future climate change and adaptation strategies, we must properly account for service supply by ecosystems, demand by people, and service flows from ecosystems to people. This webinar will present two case studies of the use of two spatially explicit approaches to providing this information: a biophysical modeling tool, the Artificial Intelligence for Ecosystem Services (ARIES) system and a survey-based approach to map cultural ecosystem services, Social Values for Ecosystem Services (SolVES).

Organization Overview: 

The Climate Reality Project, founded and chaired by former Vice President and Nobel Laureate Al Gore, is dedicated to unleashing a global cultural movement demanding action on the climate crisis. Despite overwhelming international scientific consensus on climate change, the global community still lacks the resolve to implement meaningful solutions. The Climate Reality Project exists to forge an unwavering bedrock of impassioned support necessary for urgent action. With that foundation, together we will ignite the moral courage in our leaders to solve the climate crisis.

Adaptation work: 

Many of our strategies for dealing with climate change can be neatly classified under adaptation or mitigation. Building a higher sea wall for protection from rising seas would count as an adaptation action. But not all strategies are as easy to categorize. Some blur the line between adaptation and mitigation by achieving reductions in carbon pollution and building our resiliency to the effects of climate change.
