Climate-resilient development

Supporting governments, civil society and communities to achieve climate-resilient development outcomes for the most vulnerable people

Climate change adversely impacts lives and livelihoods, infrastructure and ecosystems, undermining the ability of vulnerable people and countries to achieve their sustainable development goals. The public and private sectors, civil society organisations, communities and households all play important roles in addressing these challenges to achieve climate-resilient development that benefits the most vulnerable.

IIED supports stakeholders across the whole of society to access knowledge, develop systems, build institutions and enhance the capabilities they need to manage climate risks, minimise climate impacts and achieve equitable, climate-resilient development.
