USAID has implemented a climate change strategy with a focus of helping countries and communities prepare for and adapt to changes in climate. Countries of focus include the least developed countries, countries in Africa, small island developing states and glacier-dependent countries. The three main adaptation programs current offered involve improving access to science and analysis, establishing effective governance systems, and identifying and disseminating actions that increase resilience.
