Climate Resiliency

A global, multi-stakeholder initiative, A2R seeks to strengthen climate resilience for vulnerable countries and people by bringing together governments, international agencies, regional initiatives, the private sector, civil society and researchers.  Baseline research at YCELP will inform the A2R climate resilience targets. In this first phase, YCELP is researching climate resilience globally, focusing on least developed countries, small island developing states, and Africa. Among the areas YCELP will explore are the status of early warning and early action systems, the presence or lack of climate risk-transfer and social protection mechanisms, and the extent to which nations have shifted to climate resilient development pathways.
