As echoed throughout the current COP26 Summit, urgent preventative action is needed to mitigate the continuous destruction of our planet—and this climate action is needed right now.
But many countries aren’t in a position to act. To speed up the response across the world, low and middle-income countries need support to develop the tools and analyses, conduct the necessary research, and get access to financing.
Since 2014, through the CEADIR project, the U.S. Agency for International Development, (USAID), provided over $20 million to help countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean do just that.
Led by Crown Agents USA, and its principal partner, Abt Associates, CEADIR conducted studies to demonstrate the economic benefit of implementing climate-friendly initiatives, like restoring mangroves in Indonesia. Watch our case study video below to find out more, or read the final report here.
