Climate Resilient Development case study series

Mercy Corps’ Climate Resilient Development (CRD) approach recognizes the need for climate adaptation strategies to be integrated into all long-term development objectives.

This development-first approach builds climate resilience through development strategies that reduce poverty through measures including increased food security, enhanced social cohesion, and strengthened governance inclusive of those now marginalized and impoverished.

Our work

Mercy Corps’ capacity to integrate climate change into its broad portfolio of programming has rapidly evolved through experience across nine countries over the past seven years.

We initiated this series of case studies of our programming to discover the key lessons and best practices for integrating climate change into diverse programs and contexts.

In developing this series, our intent is to inform how CRD is designed and implemented in Mercy Corps, and share this knowledge to other practitioners and implementation for other agencies grappling with these questions.
