Climate Change / Changements climatiques

 



Goal

The goal of the Climate Change program is to support partnerships and networks that build evidence for solutions and the use of technology to generate social and economic gains and guard against future climate impacts.

The program has three priorities:

  • Generate new knowledge and inform policy in hotspots vulnerable to climate change
  • Increase the resilience of small and medium-sized cities to climate change paying particular attention to reducing the vulnerability of women; and
  • Facilitate the financing of climate adaptation strategies, especially from private sources.



Objectif

L’objectif du programme Changements climatiques consiste à appuyer des partenariats et des réseaux visant à rassembler des données probantes pour trouver des solutions et utiliser les technologies en vue d’obtenir des gains sociaux et économiques et d’atténuer les effets des changements climatiques pour l’avenir.

Le programme vise à respecter les trois priorités suivantes :

  • produire de nouvelles connaissances et orienter les politiques dans les zones les plus vulnérables aux changements climatiques;
  • augmenter la résilience des villes petites et moyennes à l’égard des changements climatiques en mettant l’accent sur la réduction de la vulnérabilité des femmes;
  • faciliter le financement de l’adaptation aux changements climatiques, en particulier de sources privées.
