Climate Resiliency

The Center is teaming up with the United Nations Environment Program to provide baseline research for their Climate Resilience Initiative: Anticipate, Absorb, Reshape (A2R). 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.
