Climatelinks Announces New Design and Features
Learning Lab is one of a constellation of USAID sites through which we hope to share and exchange knowledge and learning with the Agency’s staff and partners. Another of our “sister sites," Climatelinks, has recently undergone a redesign. Below is the Climatelinks announcement and a breakdown of the new features.
The family of USAID “links” sites are accessible at the footer of the homepage on Learning Lab.
Climatelinks has a new design and updated content – just in time for the United States to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord. The site has been revamped to better meet the needs of the USAID, its climate and development partners, and the climate community around the world.
Originally launched in October 2015, the site also serves as a venue for information sharing and exchange within its community of users. Some key features include:
Updated Sector Pages
To help mainstream climate into other sectors, the site includes our updated Climate Risk Management Portal and dedicated Monitoring & Evaluation pages. Each page includes recent resources, blogs, and events.
New Country Pages
We have updated all USAID country pages with a more user-friendly data dashboard, including climate change indicators, such as annual change in greenhouse gas emissions, percent forest area, deforestation rates, GAIN vulnerability index ratings, USAID funding, and policy indicators, such as country plans and commitments.
Cliamtelinks curates and archives technical guidance and knowledge related to USAID’s climate programming. The site houses about 3,000 resources, including more than 600 blogs. The library houses new policy documents, webcasts, training courses, and more.
Climate Risk Management Portal
This page includes our most popular resources––the Climate Risk Profiles and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Fact Sheets. There are also Climate Risk Management training resources that anyone can take from home.
The redesigned photo gallery now hosts more than 300 photos from climate and development programs around the world. Stunning photos come from two recent Climatelinks photo contests, as well as blog contributors. These images tell the story of nature-based solutions to climate change by geography and sector.
We invite you to explore the site to discover its new features. Please contact the Climatelinks team with your feedback.
